Our guest for this next PAA book club session is the wonderful Jesse Hagopian, Seattle teacher and author of “More Than a Score.” To prepare for this session, you can:
  • buy and read Jesse’s book
  • watch his terrific TedX Talk on alternatives to standardized testing, and/or
  • read some of Jesse’s articles here or here, for example.
Jesse reframes education in a way that supports all students and addresses the inherent racism in so much of current school policy and practice, including standardized testing.
