"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Kris McBride, Academic Dean & Testing Coordinator-Garfield High School in Seattle, WA joins Thom Hartmann. Teachers in Seattle are fed up with the corporate school reform agenda - and they are standing up against standardized testing. Nearly the entire teaching faculty at Garfield High School announced they will not teach, or administer, a new standardized test for 9th graders known as the MAP - the Measures of Academic Progress. The teachers say such standardized testing is a waste of time and money. A second school is even expected to join the boycott.
