Mid-Hudson Valley Screening of Standardized Lies, Money & Civil Rights: How Testing is Ruining Public Education


Hudson Valley Parent Educator Initiative/HVACC is excited to announce a screening of the Standardized film in the Mid Hudson region!

Sunday April 27, 2014 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center Theater
12 Vassar Steet, Poughkeepsie NY 12601
Tickets for the Standardized screening are $5.00.

For decades, standardized testing has been a part of public education. Within the last ten years, however, education reform has promoted even more testing. Test scores, mistakenly viewed as effective assessments of student ability and teacher/school effectiveness, are anything but. STANDARDIZED sheds light on the invalid nature of these tests, the terrible consequences of high-stakes testing, and the big money that’s involved.

Rethinking Testing Mid Hudson’s Bianca Tanis will join us together with local educators  Katie Zahedi, Principal Red Hook School District, Jill Berardi, Assistant Principal Red Hook School District and noteable local advocates to speak about the significance of New York’s refuse the test movement and for a Q & A on assessments and concerns.
