We’re extremely grateful to these individuals for sharing their art and personal stories of the how the high-stakes testing craze is affecting them: students, parents, teachers, and administrators.

This group will discuss and analyze critical texts that relate to neo-liberalism, racism, and high-stakes testing as well as design political education for the larger NYCoRE membership body.
High Stakes Testing Campaign Working Group:
This is a new group that will focus on building a campaign against high-stakes testing. In our initial state, we will focus on studying and constructing our analysis around race, neo-liberalism and testing.
We work to create safer schools for undocumented students, advocate for equal rights and opportunities for all students, increase access to resources, and lift up student activism and leadership around issues of immigration.
Curriculum Working Group:
We share lessons and strategize around how to challenge racism and oppression in a variety of education environments.
NYQueer Working Group:
NYQueer focuses on issues of gender and sexuality as they relate to school communities. We aim to support and make connections between teachers, students and community organizations engaged in the work of creating spaces where all identities are acknowledged and respected.
New Teacher Underground:
New Teacher Underground is a safe space for new or new-feeling teachers to collaborate, trouble-shoot our pedagogical practices, and bond!
Adult Educators for Social Justice:
We are educators working with adult learners; join us to share strategies for social justice pedagogy and practice within the field and to advocate, agitate, and grow together.
In addition to the working groups meeting at our monthly gatherings, there are two affinity groups of NYCoRE that meet outside of meetings.
Educators of Color Group:
We are a group of people who identify as educators of color…who advocate for a nurturing, transformative and action-driven space for educators of color to connect, learn, struggle, and heal together.
Anti-Racist White Educators Group (AWE-G):
The Antiracist White Educators Group (AWE-G) aims to cultivate a supportive yet critical space for white-identifying educators to work towards understanding, confronting and undoing racism and white supremacy in ourselves, our schools, and the larger world
