Putting Education to the Test

Thank you to author-educator Lesley Koplow for visiting Bank Street Bookstore this afternoon to read from her new book "Politics Aside: Our Children and Their Teachers in Score-Driven Times." Lesley concludes that changing the test-driven climate is essential to the well being of young children, citing how some schools have managed the change. For great ideas and conversations, attend special bookstore events by visiting our calendar listings at http://www.bankstreetbooks.com/event.

Let us know if we can provide an outstanding selection of spring (and summer) reading for your city school.
