Some say it is counterproductive to teach by the test. What do you think, I-A-B? Good or will this bring on dumber kids?

Ask any educator whose head isn't firmly planted up the fundamentalist, extreme right-wing ass of people like George Bush about NCLB and they will unanimously preach to you about what a detriment it is to our education system. Rich, in-control conservatives love education the way it is because it helps maintain the class system they need to perpetuate their influence and wealth; less affluent, "middle-class" conservatives love it because anyone who is a gun-toting, Bible-thumping conservative obviously knows what is best. Those goddamn liberals with their social welfare programs and human rights are a bunch of homogay, atheist bleeding hearts who think that humans have effects on the earth like heating the atmosphere! Nutjobs!

"You are OBLIGED to pay taxes."

This is untrue.

If you do not pay taxes, the government uses force to incarcerate you. If you don't give it, they take it.

Well, from the looks of it the American education system was failing LONG before NCLB, considering that you don`t know your words either.


"Make (someone) legally or morally bound to an action or course of action."

So, indeed you are OBLIGED to pay taxes.

Every day, when you conservatives post, it just proves more and more the statistic that liberals tend to be more intelligent.

I'm too tired to skim through all the comments right now, but let me say...I hate the standardized testing and NCLB.

As a product of it, it gave me a skewed view of `writing` all through high school and instead of teaching me how to pump out well written essays for college, I was being taught how to condense an essay into five paragraphs and make it as simple and effective as possible.

As someone going into teaching...Let me just set up a scenario. You`re in a classroom where the majority of the students are two grades below reading level (meaning a third grader is reading at a first grade level). You have about eight?ish months to get them up to a third grade level in order for them to get a proficient score on the test. You have to schedule your curriculum around that fact, and as such, your students miss out on everything "unimportant" that isn`t on the test. It`s poop.

All we need to teach is political correctness, environmentalism, and self esteem.

Oh... and that Teachers are underpaid, and Unions rock.

There, no child left behind.

That is all the Proletariat need to know.
