Like everything the NCLBA has some ups and downs and needs to be modified so that the good points of it stays and the bad points go. Here they start testing in the third grade which is really where they should. I also agree with notpanicking about the teachers being held accountable when their whole class does crappy compared to other classes of the same level. Responsibility should be on both the part of the student and the teacher. I however think the special ed students should be held to the level they can achieve and should be handled on an individual case by case determination on how they are improving. There are some kids in special ed who are totally retarted and can't really learn much beyond holding a pencil, they should be expected to read on target? Not realistic. And that is not the parents or the schools fault. It's just the child's ability.
