Please put March 9 on your calendar if you live in or near Long Island, Néw York. There will be a major event at Hofstra University to discuss current trends in education and how to set them right. 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.
