Livestream: Expanding Success of Black & Latino Young Men

The livestream of "Expanding the Success of Black and Latino Young Men," a panel featuring Research Associate Dr. Adriana Villavicencio. The panel will be moderated by David Steiner of the CUNY Institute for Education Policy. Other speakers include Vanda Belusic-Vollor, Shawn Dove, Pedro Noguera, and Michael Prayor. A new generation of initiatives aimed at promoting achievement among young men of color has emerged in recent years, engaging schools and school districts, government officials, and private foundations. In 2011, NYC launched the Young Men's Initiative--an ambitious set of programs across several City agencies designed to improve outcomes for Black and Latino males. The largest component of YMI's education effort is the Expanded Success Initiative (ESI), which provides funding and support to 40 high schools to help them improve college and career readiness among their Black and Latino male students. The CUNY Institute for Education Policy will explore the promising and challenging aspects of ESI thus far, with the goal of sharing New York City's experience with both local education stakeholders and those in other cities that are developing similar initiatives. Panelists: Shawn Dove, Campaign Manager, Campaign for Black Male Achievement, Open Society Foundation; Pedro Noguera, Professor of Education and Executive Director, Metropolitan Center for Urban Education at NYU ; Michael Prayor, Principal, Brooklyn High School for Law and Technology and Adriana Villavicencio Research Associate, Research Alliance for NYC Schools Moderated by: David Steiner Dean, Hunter College School of Education Director, CUNY Institute for Education Policy Closing remarks by: Vanda Belusic-Vollor Executive Director, Office of Multiple Pathways/Post-Secondary Readiness NYC DOE Register here: https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?oeidk=a07e91g4yvtf95781e2&oseq=&c=&ch=

Fight testing madness meeting

Change the Stakes sponsors a planning meeting about upcoming April standardized math and ELA tests. Topics include: Why the use of testing fails students and schools. Test scores do not predict learning or future academic success, nor do they measure creative thinking and problem solving. Tying tests scores to teacher evaluation forces teachers to "teach to the test," instead of tailoring instruction to meet each student's unique needs. Teachers - not test scores - should determine whether students are promoted. If there are doubts about a student's readiness, teachers should decide in consultation with parents. The DOE should reduce class size; hire teachers, counselors, and librarians;and fund after-school programs, enrichment and the arts; instead of wasting valuable public fundson testing, test prep and consultants. Massive amounts of data about students are being collected and put in the hands of third party vendors without parental consent. When test scores are used to determine promotion, school closings, and teachers' careers, the stakes are too high! The misuse of tests narrows and distorts the curriculum. All children need high-quality teaching in a healthy atmosphere that fosters the full development of their strengths and talents. HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO:* * Talk with parents and teachers. Build community around testing in your school. * Request an alternative such as portfolio assessment that reflects student growth. * Keep up with Change the Stakes on our web site, Facebook, and Twitter. * Invite Change the Stakes to your schools or your CEC meeting for an informal discussion on testing Join CHANGE THE STAKES and work to change NYC and NYS testing policies. * Opt Out - refuse to have your child take the NY State tests and all Field Tests. www.changethestakes.org
