FairTest Sponsoring 10 Washington Students

Susan Notes:

We are in this together. These are our children whose futures are at stake. Sponsor a Washington student who is at risk of not graduating due to pending state test (WASL) requirements. Help the Moms bring this class action lawsuit.

Monty Neill

Responding to the request from Washington's Mothers Against WASL and Parent Empowerment Network, FairTest is happy to be able to sponsor 10 Washington students. MAW and PEN are asking testing reform activists to 'sponsor' students -- who are at risk of not graduating due to incoming state test (WASL) graduation requirements. The funds will support a class action lawsuit against the WASL graduation test. Cooperating attorneys - Disability Rights Advocates who have won such cases, plus a private firm - will also pitch in.

Please sponsor a student and thereby contribute to the war chest for the class action lawsuit against the WASL.

Their website is http://www.mothersagainstwasl.org/member.html and you can donate using the site or by mailing a check to
