Highest ranking Latina education and labor leader calls for an end to the test, blame and punish system that has dominated public education.

As part of the National Education Association’s Back to School tour in Florida, new NEA President Lily Eskelsen Garcia will be visiting students and educators at Westside K-8 and Highlands Elementary schools in Kissimmee.

Eskelsen Garcia, the first Latina elected president of the 3-million-member NEA, will talk about the “toxic testing” that’s hurting students and schools, the upcoming gubernatorial election, school-to-prison pipeline, voter engagement and other education topics.
