No ________________ Left Behind

Busy, busy, busy, busy........

Today, the results of last year's NCLB testing were released. Naturally, it got me riled up again about what a waste NCLB truly is. Unfortunately, I don't have time to go into everything (nest week will be better), so I'm reposting this from back in February. Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow night.


Have you ever stopped to think what it would be like if the principles of the No Child Left Behind Act were applied to other things? I hadn't really considered this until I checked my mail today and found this:

Sounds pretty ridiculous doesn't it? The worst part of this is that it's true. The goals set forth by NCLB are no more realistic than the farcical example set forth here.

This particular example ended with a statement that I think really sums up the state of education today. It said:

Sad isn't it? It's too bad that the best our country can do is to strive for mediocrity.

Thanks George!
