The Other PARCC

Featured Video Play Icon

On a weekend in December, I took a borrowed camera and lights and headed to Montclair, New Jersey. All weekend long, one after another, public school parents and students tromped down the basement stairs in the home of a parent activist. She and other parents had assembled a diverse collection of urban and suburbanites, so that I could record their testimony. They wanted to talk about the changes that they were witnessing in their schools and in their children, changes which they believed emanated directly from corporate education reforms, and in particular, the upcoming PARCC Standardized Tests.
