The Rochester Coalition for Public Education held a rally Friday, in protest of the New York State Education Department’s proposed Every Student Succeeds Act.
According to the coalition, the proposal’s emphasis on state testing “guarantees the continuation of narrowed test-prep curriculum that has spurred the nation’s largest test refusal movement.”
Organizers protested in front of the Rochester City School District’s central office in downtown Rochester Thursday.
