Defies Measurement Screening At Villanova — Defies Measurement, a film revealing how the worship of standardized testing is ruining schools, will be screened, 7 p.m., Feb. 2 in the cinema at Villanova University’s Connelly Center.
The event is being co-sponsored by Parents Across America (Suburban Philadelphia). There will be a panel discussion following the one-hour movie.
Among those featured in the film is a Lower Merion parent.
Pro-education activist Joanne Yurchak of West Chester is strongly promoting the movie.
“It is time to start thinking about opting as many children out of these standardized tests as we can,” she said. “Some parents are actually putting up yard signs to publicize this issue and I have been told that folks who come to the screening can take one home.”
