Press Conference re: City Council Resolution on High-Stakes Testing

On December 9th, Change the Stakes participated in a press conference held on the steps of City Hall in support of Resolution 1394, which calls for high-stakes standardized tests to be replaced by multiple measures. The press conference was organized by NYC Councilman Robert Jackson and Time Out From Testing. 

Resolution 1394 was modeled on a national piece of legislation that has been endorsed by many Boards of Education across the country and more than 500 organizations.

Change the Stakes thanks both Councilman Robert Jackson and Jane Hirschmann of Time Out From Testing for their leadership in putting this measure before the NYC Council!
