Feature Film: Tested by Curtis Chin

The Program Committee is proud to feature a film screening at our upcoming conference. Tested by Curtis Chin looks at the important issue of racial diversity and public schools by following a dozen families in New York City from different racial, socio-economic and religious backgrounds as they prepare to pass the grueling standardized test to get into one of the city's best high schools. The film premiered at the DOC NYC film festival in NYC where The Village Voice named it one of the best films in the festival. The film has since screened with Lincoln Center, the White House, the American Educational Research Association, the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity, the Southern Sociological Society, SXSWEdu and more. To view the trailer, please go to: www.testedfilm.com.  For more information, visit http://www.sssp1.org/index.cfm/m/708/Film_Exhibit/.
