Standardized - Lies, Money, & Civil Rights

Standardized - Lies, Money, & Civil Rights:
How Testing is Ruining Public Education

Monday, February 10th at 6:30 p.m.,  PEJAM is presenting a special screening of the documentary "Standardized." The screening will be immediately followed by a panel and audience discussion.   This will be held at South Senior High School in Minneapolis.

View the trailer here:

 As described on the website for Rockfish Productions:

"For decades, standardized testing has been a part of public education. Within the last ten years, however, the testing has taken on a more important, and possibly more damaging, role. Test scores, mistakenly viewed as effective assessments of student ability and teacher/school effectiveness, are anything but. This film sheds light on the invalid nature of these tests, the terrible consequences of high-stakes testing, and the big money that's involved."

Come learn about the truth behind the standardized testing, and what you can do about it. Information will be available about the "Opt Out" movement.  If you are on Facebook, following this link and click "join" on our event page.

Because we are a non-profit community organization, we are asking for donations of $5.00 - $10.00 to cover our costs. However, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
