Matt Damon and Nancy Carlsson-Paige to Garfield Teachers! « Diane Ravitch’s blog.

“This is a personal message from actor Matt Damon and early childhood educator Nancy Carlsson-Paige, addressed to the teachers of Garfield High:

 

We are writing to support all of the teachers at Garfield High School.  We admire your strong and unified stand against the district mandated standardized test. Teachers, students, and parents do not have to accept practices that are harmful to them and to the whole meaning and purpose of education. We know it takes courage to risk your jobs in order to stand for what you know is right.  But your example holds the promise of inspiring teachers in school districts all over the country to take similar action.  Thank you for your strength and courage.  We admire you and are behind you all the way.

 

Hey, Garfield teachers, Matt and Nancy think you are great!

 

Nancy Carlsson-Paige and Matt Damon”
