by AustinTalks on November 28, 2012

Education advocacy group Raise Your Hand is hosting a community forum Thursday to discuss standardized testing in Chicago’s Public Schools.

Teachers, parents, members of Raise Your Hand and Chicagoland Researchers and Advocates for Transformative Education, as well as Professor Noah Sobe of Loyola University Chicago are expected to attend the 7 to 9 p.m forum  at Holstein Park, 2200 N. Oakley Ave.

The ISATs and concerns about flaws with the test will be an area of focus at the meeting, according to a Raise Your Hand press release.

Anyone interested in attending should RSVP by email:  info@ilraiseyourhand.org to ensure there are enough materials for the meeting.
