Do standardized tests help level the playing field in education by exposing achievement gaps and holding schools accountable for meeting the needs of all children? Or do they simply worsen existing socioeconomic and educational inequalities? Monty Neill from FairTest.org, Lisa Guisbond from Citizens for Public Schools, and Keri Rodrigues from Massachusetts Parents United will share their unique perspectives on these questions. Attendees will have the chance to pose questions and comments to our guests!

This event is free and open to the public, and no registration or RSVP is required. First come, first seated. 

This is the second event in #edjustice, a two-week series of events on justice & injustice in the American education system, sponsored by the Martin Richard Institute for Social Justice at Bridgewater State University.
