Read Press Release from 4/11/14: 
37 PRINCIPALS LEAD SCHOOLS ACROSS MANHATTAN IN PROTEST AGAINST STANDARDIZED TEST


PS11 PARENTS AND STUDENTS
PROTEST AGAINST THE 2014 ELA EXAM

FRIDAY, APRIL 11 at 8:15am on the steps of PS11

Watch our Principal Bob Bender, interviewed today on Fox 5 News. He was one of the principals of over 30 elementary schools and one middle school in Lower Manhattan who sent a letter to their students' parents calling for a demonstration Friday against the New York State mandated ELA, or English language arts exam which is designed to raise standards in all communities by standardizing reading and writing levels. The principals say they support testing in general, but for two years the New York ELA exam was poorly constructed, confusing and even had product mentions like Nike and Barbie. You can read the letter written by a coalition of District 2 principals, including Principal Bender, here.
