CDD Co-Sponsors Local Public Issues Forum on Standardized Testing in Schools

A Centre County Public Issues Forum on the topic of standardized testing in schools will be held on Thursday, April 24 from 6:00-8:30 p.m. in Schlow Centre Region Library.

The central question to be addressed is:  "What should be the role of standardized state testing in our schools?"  This question will be discussed from various vantage points, which are previewed in this front-page story in the Centre Daily Times.  The forum aims to foster discussion about the role of standardized testing in schools, in light of recent major changes to the Pennsylvania law regarding state educational assessments.

This event, co-sponsored by the Center for Democratic Deliberation, is free and open to the public.
