PSAT for 4-23-13: Support the student PSAE test boycott

psat_logo

Tomorrow, CPS high school students organized by Chicago Students Organizing to Save Our Schools and VOYCE will boycott the second day of the state high school exam, the Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE).

The first testing day includes the ACT test, which many students need for college applications. The students are asserting their right to make up the second day test during a state-scheduled make-up test day next month.

The students say they are “under-resourced, over-tested and fed up!”

The students are making the direct connection between testing and school closing, which they oppose. They will hold a press conference tomorrow prior to the school board meeting,

For Public Schools Action Tuesday (PSAT), here’s what you can do to support the students:

  • Like their Facebook page.

  • Watch and share their excellent video.

  • Wear white tomorrow in solidarity.

  • Follow their twitter feeds – @chistudentsorg and look for #cpsboycott
