Political Education Meeting: Stand Up, Opt Out in NYC!
Join NYCoRE for this month’s political education meeting, which will feature activists involved in the growing opt out movement in New York City. Our panel will offer an overview of the state of high-stakes testing and the current opt out movement in NYC. Then we’ll brainstorm and strategize individually and collectively about how we can support the opt out movement.
