Panel on MCAS test scheduled

A lunchtime panel discussion for parents on "The Impact of the MCAS Tests on Our Children and Their Schools" will be held Friday, April 28 from noon-1pm in Rm 4-163.

Panelists will include Professor George Stiny of architecture and Kate Gyllensvard, senior library assistant (both of whom have children who have boycotted the test); Professor Emeritus Jonathan King of biology; and educator Anne Wheelock, author of Crossing the Tracks. Professor King is author of an article opposing the MCAS (Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System) in the January/February issue of the Faculty Newsletter.

The event is being organized by an ad hoc committee of MIT parents who oppose the MCAS. For more information, contact Anna Ferrigno Ward, ward@math.mit.edu.
