Stop NCLB!!!

NCLB is destroying public education and doing irreparable harm to children.  California children are hit particularly hard because California has set very high passing rates and implemented about a kazillion curriculum standards per grade level.  I encourage everyone to talk to classroom teachers and students to see how it is affecting classrooms across our state.  I also encourage everyone to visit http://www.educatorr… and sign their petition and to watch this video….  Both will give you an idea of how teachers feel about this heinous piece of legislation.

I am a public school teacher in Southern California and will be writing more about education in this space.  Your first homework assignment is to learn about the education/testing related corporations that have donated to Representative George Miller’s campaigns.  That should help you understand a little better why he is pushing to renew NCLB with minor changes.
