Dear Superintendent Banda,
Parent Voices NY, a NYC public-school parent advocacy group, sends its support to the boycotting teachers at Garfield High School. Parent Voices oppose high-stakes testing, and we commend the Garfield teachers for taking a courageous stand by refusing to administer a test that interferes with and detracts from REAL learning, exacerbates inequities, and fosters anxiety in students. Please listen to your teachers!
Martha Foote – spokesperson for Parent Voices NY
