I am an ardent bush supporter but one of the things he implimented that I disliked is the No Child Left Behind Act. Teachers are teaching to tests. Crappy teachers are prtected with tenure, and special needs students are forced along side the other students. They are called special needs for a reason. They have SPECIAL NEEDS! I remeber being in high school in Cali and the special needs girl roaming the hall screaming while we were trying to take tests! And in my dd elemntary school they have thsame kinds of problems!
Teachers are dropping like flies b/c of all the restrictions and tests. Couldn't we change THIS??? But it seems he is justexpanding on these (crappy) Bush policies!
Do you like the No Child Left Behind Act? Do you think the additions help or hurt?

i just find it humorous that Obama didn't change anything about it. Not saying that I agree with it, but just watching ANOTHER broken promise from the anointed one, makes me laugh.

Have you talked to any teachers about this program heather. Most of them hate it.

That's great...for YOUR son....what about the ALL the OTHER kids who are distracted, lose the attention of their already over extended teacher, and (lets face it kids are mean) CAN'T understand the complexities of what is wrong with many of those special needs students!
