EDU invites educators, students, parents and community members to participate in a town hall on standardized testing.
Please come out and join the discussion as we try to answer these questions (and more):

* What’s behind the push for more standardized tests?
* How are standardized tests affecting our schools and communities?
* What are the alternatives that actually help our schools and students and how do we fight for them?
