Jesse has compiled an exciting collection of essays, poems, speeches, and interviews—accounts of personal courage and trenchant insights—from frontline fighters who are defying the corporate education reformers, often at great personal and professional risk, and fueling a national movement to reclaim and transform public education.

We’re excited to host Jesse, as well as FairTest Executive Director Monty Neill, Author Alfie Kohn, Early Childhood Education Expert Nancy Carlsson-Paige and MTA President Barbara Madeloni on Thursday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. at First Parish in Cambridge, at the corner of Church Street and Massachusetts Avenue. 61oand3hMtL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_The authors will speak about the national uprising against high-stakes testing and how the Massachusetts movement fits in to this larger context. There will be time for an exchange with the authors and the opportunity to buy the book and get it signed by the authors.
