Nabbing a spot in one of New York City’s best public high schools can change kids’ lives—but who gets in?
Curtis Chin’s TESTED follows a dozen racially and socio-economically diverse 8th graders as they fight for a seat at one of these schools. Their only way in: to ace a single standardized test.
Join the College of Education’s MESA Abriendo Caminos team and the Department of Interdisciplinary, Gender, & Ethnic Studies’ Asian and Asian American Studies program as we host a documentary screening and Q&A with TESTED’s filmmaker.
