New York Teachers Rally for their Students and Fair Testing

June 10, 2013

Thousands of teachers, parents and allies rallied in Albany, N.Y., on Saturday in opposition to the use of high stakes standardized tests that are being put in place before the state and teachers have time to fully implement the new curriculum to support those tests.  More than 225 buses filled with people showed up to the rally, which was sponsored by New York State United Teachers, the New York State AFL-CIO, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Citizen Action, New York Immigration Coalition and New Yorkers for Fiscal Fairness.
