MAP Test Boycott Victory Tour with Jesse Hagopian

Beginning this weekend, Garfield High School teacher and Rethinking Schools editorial associate Jesse Hagopian will be traveling around the country to share the lessons of how educators in Seattle organized and won a historic victory against standardized testing by boycotting the MAP test.  After months of threats from the Seattle School District, they finally agreed to no longer require the MAP test at the high school level.   Teachers, students, and parents around the nation are ready to build a movement to stop the high stakes testing mania and the story of how Garfield teachers united communities in common cause for quality assessment will help these struggles grow.  Send I AM AN EDUCATOR a message to let Jesse know if you will be able to attend one of his speaking events or to inquire about having a Seattle MAP test boycott teacher address your organization.

  5. Make sure that the material feels and looks comfortable.
    These overt displays of fashion are way more risqu
    than what men wear as underwear. Shopping for a bra
    can be really difficult when you’re faced with a multitude of shapes and styles and then you need to consider what size.

    Going bare, at least for young ladies and slightly older women, is an invite called “ready for action. There are many cheaper varieties of underwear you might come across in the market that claim to be “next big thing” to the actual underwear.
