As a teacher, I do not agree with this act, as it tries to say that all kids are the same. It has been proven over and over again that children develop at different stages.

Don't say that it pissed off the unions, because I am not union, and it pissed me off. Most of the teachers that I know, some who are in to union and love it, some who are in the union and hate it, all agree that NCLB is a buch of crap.

Bush is our president. I support him. Does that mean I agree with everything he does? No. But to sit there and write things without having any facts to back them up make you look like the idiot.
Hey Smasher, this is what a coherent argument sounds like. My wife is a teacher and I am a post-secondary educator - we deal with this stuff all the time. It is a POS policy and it is killing our school systems.

yes because without bush or the war the terrorists would have killed all of us, especially in rural Michigan. I hear that they were targeting the grain elevator in shepherd.


seriously, this is a shitty excuse. being in Iraq is not saving any American lives.

First off, I thought you were talking about the war.

Second, Since when do I "always drag that out and wave it around"? I don't remember posing about the war frequently. I am really confused by this.

Don't you know if Obama gets in he is going to pull us out of Iraq. That way the guys over there can go down with the ship here, Because thats exactly where Captian Comunist is going to take us.

This does not provide a well-rounded education, and it hurts the students in the long run.

Did I submit my suggestion a day too late? No.
Actually, I couldn't find the suggestion box.
Actually I believe funding for poorly performing schools is actually increased for a period, along with bonuses for meeting additional requirements.

Did it occur to you that the cheating and teaching to the standardized test that I was mentioning contributing to the lack of a well-rounded education results in INCREASED FUNDING FOR POORLY PERFORMING SCHOOLS AND BONUSES FOR MEETING ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS.

While it may be good to get funding for those schools, the money is getting there at the expense of the students.

You are proving my point, sir.

Which in many cases is only crappy because the media has repeated it so often they've begun believing it.
