Why Remnants of the Occupy Movement Should Join the Growing "Test Revolt"

There is no sphere of public policy, with the possible exception of housing and bank regulation, where the extreme concentration of wealth has produced more damaging consequences than in education. A bi-partisan coalition of billionaires has united to imposed a regime of testing and teacher evaluation on the nation's public schools which is driving teachers, students and families into revolt. The remnants of the Occupy Movement, which still exist in almost every section of the country, need to join this revolt. Support families who Opt Out. Help organize student strikes against testing
Join the movement to stop the Common CORE. And demand that policy makers allow local communities have the option of creating "test free schools" where the creativity of students and teachers can be unleashed! As we used to say in the Sixties "Dare to Struggle, Dare to Win"
