One Size Does Not Fit All

The One Size Does Not Fit All panel discussion filmed on December 12, 2015, at the MetroEast Community Media Center has been edited and is ready to be broadcast four times on community media stations. The panel discussion will then be archived at the media center and made available for wide distribution.

The panel commented on timely topics in education such as: How have our schools and educational oversight changed? How did this change happen? How did standardized testing and CC$$ become hotly debated issues? What is opting out of testing and how prevalent is this? How is the privatization of education connected to healthcare, prisons and the attack on unions? How does all of this impact our communities? How is data being collected and used? How is "equity" being used to promote school reform and how is this abuse being challenged? What does the future look like?
