    Does that mean they like NCLB?

    Obama did not start that crap.

    Why haven't the teachers suggested a National Recommended Reading List in the last 50 years?

    How much of the problem is the educational system giving kids boring useless crap to learn? Then testing to see how much boring useless crap they memorized. Really SMART students are so good at memorizing boring useless crap.

    But the right hates teachers and blamed them at every point they could for our schools mess.


    Now testing drafted under Bush is Obamas fault?

    Just more blather from unions imo.

    How dare anyone demand teachers have an acceptable level of capability and maintaine that thier entire careers?

    Libs hate the Bush standards and therefore must hate all our children.

    Libs support the DoE and since it's creation or level of education has declined. Further proving libs hate children.

    Party, government and unions ahead of children.

    The teachers aren't complaining about NCLB or even standardized testing exclusively. It's some particular problems with 'reforms' from Arne Duncan and the administration as a whole.

    The Left has succeeding in making sure our kids can't think and have no connection with their past or their country, does it really matter if they can read or write after that?

    why are you lying about what they said in the article?


    Passionate and articulate, many of them classroom teachers, the critics tend to zero in on the increasingly high-stakes role played by standardized tests, which can make or break the reputation of a school or teacher – even if the tests aren't very good.

    "What we call 'accountability' now is just totally unreliable numbers that are meaningless in terms of the lives of children and the careers of teachers," says Diane Ravitch, a historian and former advocate of standards-based reforms who is now one of its most frequent and ardent critics. "All they're doing is terrorizing teachers."
