Next month school districts across New Jersey will begin administering the PARCC (Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) tests. What are these tests and how are they different from previous state assessments? How have school districts prepared for these tests? Please join host Ray Pinney, NJSBA director of county activities and member engagement, on Feb. 27 from 3 to 3:45 p.m. for Conversations on New Jersey Education, NJSBA’s online radio program. He will discuss these and other questions about PARCC with Dr. Robert Price, director of curriculum and instruction for the Northern Valley Schools Consortium, and Debra Johnson Dahrouge, an English teacher from Neptune High School.
About the Program Conversations on New Jersey Education, NJSBA’s program over BlogTalkRadio.com, is similar to a live radio talk show, except it is broadcast through the Internet. The 45-minute shows air live, but recordings are also available to download later, or to listen to “on demand” online.
Listeners only need a computer with high-speed Internet access. To hear the live show or past recorded broadcasts, visit NJSBA’s BlogTalk Radio web page.
