Please put March 9 on your calendar if you live in or near Long Island, Néw York. There will be a major event at C.W. Post University to discuss current trends in education and how to set them right. The event was originally set for Hofstra but the auditorium had only 1,000 seats, and the organizers quickly ran out of tickets. The event has been moved to the Tilles Center, which holds 2,200 people. Tickets are free. Reserve a seat here.

Long Island is the epicenter of test rebellion. Most of Néw York’s 60,000 plus students who opted out were in Long Island. Principals and superintendents have been outspoken against high-stakes testing.

I will speak, so will Carol Burris as well as parents and others who object to the plague of high-stakes testing.
