Who are we?     

We are a small group of parents and educators who want an open discussion about education policy and practice – particularly the effects high stakes testing and the drive towards privatization have on our communities. We don’t agree with each other on everything but we do our research and talk openly - and with civility.

 

 

 

About the movie (can be downloaded for free!):

 

"This documentary is fantastic! As an academic I can assure anyone who may not know the research that Defies Measurement is entirely in line with our best knowledge and the people interviewed are top experts. Every American should watch this film -- period."
-Salvatore Babones, author of

"I just watched the film. You did a tremendous job cutting through the haze. I will be using it in my educational leadership classes."
