i'm waiting for your rebuttal. you gave me 5 minutes. i'm giving you 3 more before i sign off.
the no child left behind theory, IN THEORY, is wonderful. but, the reality is that although there is funding to help, there's no real progress in changing how children learn across the board. bottom line. there needs to be some fundamental changes in how children learn. there shouldn't be a HUGE disparity between the level of education a child receives when they attend a private school oppose to attending a public one.
our public schools can do more. they should do more. & it begins with not only giving money to those schools, it begins by sending a message to the families that they need to care or else.... it begins by allowing a student in any neighbor access to the same quality of an education that one would receive at the best private school. & it's more than just class size...
the no child left behind should do more than weed students who don't test well out...did you know more minorities aren't graduating from high school because of testing. geewiz...i wonder why is that!
