PS 59 Community Rallies for Better Tests!
April 11th, 2014


In concert with most of the other District 2 Elementary Schools, PS 59 teachers, staff, parents and students rallied outside of school Friday morning.


We were joined by NYS Assemblyman Dan Quart to share concerns regarding this year's NY State English Language Arts exams to fairly and accurately test our students knowledge and ability.


Feelings ran high, but familes and staff participated with thoughtfulness, humor and eloquence (see the signs?) thanks to the leadership of Principal Adele Schroeter.
