For too long so-called education reformers, mostly billionaires, politicians, and others with little or no background in teaching, have gotten away with using standardized testing to punish our nation's youth and educators. Now, across the country, students are walking out, parents are opting their children out, and teachers are refusing to administer these detrimental exams. In fact, the "reformers" today find themselves facing the largest revolt in US history against high-stakes, standardized testing. More Than a Score is a collection of essays, poems, speeches, and interviews--accounts of personal courage and trenchant insights--from frontline fighters who are defying the corporate education reformers, often at great personal and professional risk, and fueling a national movement to reclaim and transform public education.Along with the voices of students, parents, teachers, administrators, and grassroots education activists, the book features renowned education researchers and advocates, including Diane Ravitch, Alfie Kohn, Nancy Carlsson-Paige, Karen Lewis, Carol Burris, and Mark Naison.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Jesse HagopianPublisher: Haymarket BooksPublished: 12/01/2014ISBN: 9781608463923Pages: 336Weight: 1.10lbsSize: 8.90h x 6.00w x 0.90dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 10/27/2014Kirkus Reviews 11/01/2014Booklist 11/15/2014 pg. 5Foreword 02/26/2015
