Great News for Social Justice and Student Privacy

March 21, 2016

Dear Friend,

1. Dr. Betty Rosa was just voted as Chancellor of the New York Board of Regents. She is a former teacher, principal and Superintendent from the Bronx, and will be a voice for social justice, for smaller classes, for all those programs that children need for a truly equitable chance at success. She is also a collaborative leader and sensitive to parent concerns about testing and student privacy. Some of you may remember that she was awarded the Class Size Matters “Skinny” award in 2012; I have no doubt that she will lead our state’s schools in a new direction and one that is sorely needed.

2. Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 22, Rachael Stickland, the co-chair and co-founder of our Parent Coalition for Student Privacy will be testifying before the US House Education and Workforce Committee about the need to strengthen federal protections for student privacy. Testimony starts at 10 AM; please watch here:

3. Thursday night, March 24 at 8 PM I will be participating in an Network for Public Education/Education Bloggers webinar on how to use the Freedom of Information Law and other methods to uncover the truth about corporate ed reform; please join us! For more information and to register go here:
