MPS School Board Action Tonight! #CanceltheContract
5:00pm
Davis Center
1250 W. Broadway Ave.
Minneapolis, MN 55411

Come stand with teachers, staff, families, students, community, and the Social Justice Education Movement (SJEM) as we demand that MPS:
1. End MPS’s contract with Reading Horizons
2. Form a diverse, community based assessment entity to review current and future curriculum and partners
3. End scripted curriculum and expensive, short term, test-score centered purchasing
4. Provide funds for teachers, schools, and communities to review and replace marginalizing curriculum and texts in their current libraries with richly diverse and culturally relevant curriculum and literature

Join us afterwards at Neighborhoods Organizing for Change (NOC), 1101 West Broadway Ave, Suite 100
Minneapolis, MN 55411 for a fun social gathering beginning at 6:30pm with light refreshment.
