PSAT for 4-2-13 Part 2: Save the date for MTAS Play-In!

playwatertableMore Than a Score is sponsoring a Play In at CPS to drive home the message that children need play.

The youngest learners in Chicago Public Schools are facing multiple standardized tests—as many as 14 in some kindergarten classrooms—inappropriate amounts of seatwork, homework, and a lack of opportunities for play, exploration, and creativity.

We know that young children learn through play. We want opportunities for play, the arts, and active exploration returned to early childhood classrooms across this city.

Come before report card pick up to demonstrate the power of play to the CPS Board of Education:

Wednesday April 17th
9:30-11am
CPS headquarters, 125 S. Clark St., Chicago

Help organize or share your concerns about the removal of play from early childhood education by joining our Facebook group.

Sign up for the Play-In!
