Teachers who oppose the CCSS based state mandated high stakes test (ISAT in Illinois) are being threatened with the stripping of their teacher certification which would end their teaching careers. This is the threat of being fired and being essentially blacklisted from teaching.
The battle being fought by these teachers will determine whether your state, indeed every state, will be bullied the same way. They are fighting the good fight to save all of our children as they themselves risk everything.
Please blog and network the info and/or meme requesting that people call the Chicago Board of Education with this message.
Please call 773-553-1600 on Monday, March 10.
Suggested Message: “I’d like to leave a message for all members of the Chicago Board of Education. I support families boycotting the ISAT, and there should be no retaliation against teachers who stood up for their students on the ISAT”.
