TUESDAY, APRIL 28TH
6:30 P.M.
PIERCE COUNTY SOUTH HILL LIBRARY

Sponsored by The Facebook groups:
Pierce-Thurston County Common Core Concerned Citizens (375+)

Synopsis:
For decades, standardized testing has been a part of public education. Within the last ten years, however, education reform has promoted even more testing. Test scores, mistakenly viewed as effective assessments of student ability and teacher/school effectiveness, are anything but. STANDARDIZED sheds light on the invalid nature of these tests, the terrible consequences of high-stakes testing, and the big money that’s involved.
