Seattle Magazine: “How Garfield High Defeated the MAP Test”

Garfield reading teacher Mallory Clarke, Garfield PTSA president Phil Sherburne, and myself are all featured in Seattle Magazine’s August issue in their examination of the MAP test boycott victory.

As Phil said, “When we identify the kids who are not performing, we need to figure out the optimum way to use our resources to help them progress. That’s not about more testing. That’s about figuring out a learning style and how you motivate these kids to learn.”  With leadership like this in the PTSA, you can see why we won!
