Testing Education - A teacher's memoir image

Join us virtually to hear veteran Cambridge educator Kathy Greeley read from her memoir

In Testing Education, Kathy Greeley recounts the impact of education reform from a teacher’s point of view. Based on a teaching career spanning nearly 40 years, Greeley details how schools went from learning communities infused with excitement, intellectual stimulation, and joy to sterile spaces of stress, intimidation, and fear. In this ultimately hopeful memoir, Greeley asks us to learn from the past to reimagine the future of public education.

At this virtual event, Kathy will read some passages from the book and open it up to discussion with the audience. You can order the book directly from UMass Press and get a discount. (Use code UMASS20 to save 20% when you order from UMass Press.) Kathy started writing this book when she retired almost 6 years ago. We're excited for her to share it with all of us.
