South Brooklyn Progressive Resistance invites you to...

A conversation about ESSA testing and the movement to opt out.

Parents have the right to opt out of testing in grades 3-8. Why would one want to opt out? What’s the impact of doing so for your child and your school? This is an opportunity for parents to ask questions about testing, learn more about the Opt Out movement, and consider the implications of high-stakes standardized tests for education equity and social justice.

Childcare available. If you are bringing a kid, please email us at and let us know their age so we can make sure we’re prepared. Donations to pay workers are welcome but not required.
