Dismantle NCLB

Ms. Whatsit has a post urging everyone to petition congress to dismantle the NCLB law. Please, read her post and sign the petition. The NCLB law does nothing to help our children. Its mandates put undo burdens on our children to perform at levels that some are incapable of reaching. It forces teachers to teach to tests, rather than to teach our students to think.

The school systems need accountability, but this law is not the way to go about doing it.

Thanks for the plug!

Perhaps one day our chorus will be heard.
