New Mexico Walkouts:
Young People of Color Fight Corporate Testing in the Public Schools
Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at 6pm ET/5 CT/4 MT/3 PT
Join Albuquerque youth organizers Janelle Astorga Ramos (SouthWest Organizing Project) and Maya Quiñones for a conversation about the recent student walk-outs in New Mexico to protest the implementation of the PARCC standardized test in public schools there, and prospects for the workmoving forward. The conversation will place the anti-test movement in the context of broader themes of public education such as push-out and the criminalization of youth. Our host will be youth and education organizer Kameisha Smith (Southern Echo) of Holmes County, Mississippi.
This webinar will be accompanied by a Twitter Chat. Our hashtag is #OurEducation.
You can join the webinar from a computer with webcam and microphone or by phone. You will be sent information on how to join the webinar once we receive your registration. Looking forward to seeing you March 24!
