10 Years is Enough

Twitter has been blowing up because the No Child Left Behind Act is turing 10 on Saturday. Education Week has put together a powerful compilation piece that relays the feelings surrounding this controversial legislation.

So where has this piece of legislation that promised so much left us?

Behind.

And actually that’s exactly what it was intended to do.

If you dig a little deeper and investigate the National Reading Panel’s report, you’ll start to question whether our public schools were in the dire state that the report alleged they were.

It’s even more suspicious when you consider how companies like Pearson have benefitted from the legislation (particularly if you start looking at where political campaign money).

For 10 years, teachers have been at the mercy of this political game.

Isn’t it time to stop this?
