This year’s keynote will be a powerful merging of performance and personal storytelling.  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.  We will hear how people from different locations are facing of these systems through organizing, resisting, and visioning alternatives!  We hope that you all will take with you reminders of inspiration and creativity for our continued work in this beautiful movement.
