March 19 forum in Chicago with Garfield teacher Jesse Hagopian

March 19 flyer

More Than a Score and the Chicago Teachers Union are co-sponsoring a forum featuring Seattle teacher Jesse Hagopian, a leader of the Garfield High School test boycott, along with CTU president Karen Lewis.

It will be held on Tuesday, March 19, at 7 pm at the Mt. Carmel MB Church. 2976 S Wabash.

The Garfield teachers made national headlines earlier this month when they announced they would not administer the district MAP test. When threats were made to suspend the teachers, the students organized a boycott against the test as well, and in the end, so few Garfield high school students took the test that the results will be useless in teacher evaluation.

Come hear more on March 19! Spread the word by downloading and copying the event flyer.
