Feedback- No Child Left Behind

Tuesday, September 28, 2004 - 11:50 AM

I do not have children, but when I do they are going to private school. The public education in this country is appalling. I refuse to believe that by doing standardized tests is going to be an accurate gage as to whether or not a child is actually learning. It seems to me that it is to the benefit of politicians to keep Americans stupid, so they won't vote them out of office. No child left behind, what a joke. –N.M.

So we have the perfect storm of bad national standards and bad local control. Two cheers for bipartisanship. –J.G.
