There is growing dissent with NCLB (No Child Left Behind), and I think it is time to gauge just how big this trend is getting.
I've discussed what I think the fallacies are with testing and direct instruction and other components of NCLB in previous blogs. So have these guys:
I know there are more people out there who are also concerned. I've talked to teachers and educators of teachers, and most of the people I talk to seem to agree with us. I'd like to know how many of us are out there.
Please respond to this entry and let me know. It can be as simple as Yea, Nay, or you can expound all you like. Just keep it civil. And, no, I don't mind if you disagree. I just want to have an honest discussion and not one filled with rhetoric.
I'll pass your votes and ideas on to other bloggers and colleagues, so let us know what you think.
We need to become a unified voice to be a stronger voice.
