Here is a video of students protesting against StudentsFirst because it supports:
1) charter schools (which in NYC do not accept a fair share of ELLs)
2) high-stakes testing
3) an anti-immigrant Georgia state legislator
The response of StudentsFirst: It claimed the students are just pawns of the teachers’ union, obviously not intelligent enough to be part of a discussion of education issues that matter.
But note that all three points that the students made are correct.
Why does StudentsFirst think that students are too dumb to have valid views about their own education?
