Hello everyone. As you may know, Action 2020 be hosting a free screening of the documentary Defies Measurement this Friday, March 6th. The event will be held at Red Bay Coffee Public Roastery at 3098 E 10th Street, Oakland, at 6 p.m.
The film examines the impact of standardized testing through the lens of Chipman Middle School in Alameda, and shows how testing and corporate reformers have changed a culture of learning into a culture of standardization. Filmmaker Shannon Puckett will be on hand to discuss the film and how it relates to the situation in Oakland today, along with several Chipman former students and teachers. Childcare will be provided.
