We Don't Need Heroes

Troy Anthony LaRaviere is a Chicago school principal who supports students and their parents. In a letter to CPS administration, he wrote, 'No child under my watch, who has expressed his or her decision to refuse the PARCC, will be sat in front of any computer to take it, nor presented with any materials. We will not waste even more learning time by subjecting our students to ISBE's deceptive fear-mongering and CPS's hypocritical test-driven political theater.' --March 15, 2015
