Announcing: NAME’s New MEDIA TOOL-KIT

CLICK to download
NAME Media Toolkit on Evaluating Teachers

NAME developed and offers this toolkit to assist NAME chapters, members, and other advocates of equity and social justice in education to collectivize and speak out through the media.

Included in this toolkit are several items:
• Tips for collectivizing and for speaking through the media, including links to many other resources
• A research brief with background information on this legislative trend, and where you can learn more

This toolkit was produced by the NAME Political Action Committee, the NAME Public Consciousness-Raising Committee, and in particular, research assistant Michael Barnes. We hope that, together, we can use this toolkit to speak collectively on the real dangers that rushed teacher-evaluation reforms can have on our schools and our children.
