The Paterson Education Association is holding a free screening of “Standardized: Lies, Money and Civil Rights: How Testing Is Ruining Public Education” on Thursday, February 19 at the Fabian 8 Cinema.

The free screening include popcorn and soda for invitees. Persons wishing to attend the screening should register by clicking here.

Film synopsis: “For decades, standardized testing has been a part of public education. Within the last ten years, however, the testing has taken on a more important, and possibly more damaging, role. Test scores, mistakenly viewed as effective assessments of student ability and teacher/school effectiveness, are anything but. STANDARDIZED sheds light on the invalid nature of these tests, the terrible consequences of high-stakes testing, and the big money that’s involved.”

Date: Thursday, February 19
Registration: 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Movie begins: 6:00 pm
Location: Fabian 8 Cinema at Center City Mall
301 Main Street, Upper Level, Paterson, NJ 07505

Register online through Eventbrite.

The screening is hosted by the PEA’s Human Relations and Government Relations Committees. Screening is sponsored by the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) PRIDE in Public Education program.
