The New York State Allies for Public Education (NYSAPE)–a coalition of more than 50 parent and teacher groups–is raising funds to pay for two billboards on key highways in Albany and possibly other cities.. They need your help. Can you send a contribution of any size to help them meet their goal? The message will be something like “Less testing. More teaching.” I gave $100. Give whatever you can. Please.

This is how they describe their campaign:

“Despite the protests of tens of thousands of public school parents, Governor Cuomo intends to double down on his misguided education reforms and require an increased reliance on harmful high stakes tests.

“Test refusal is our best chance to save our children from a test-driven education and the privatization of public education in New York State. Please help New York State Allies for Public Education, a coalition of more than 50 parent and community groups, in our final push to fund billboards in key areas of NY state urging parents to refuse the tests this spring.”
