An amazing article in the NY Times of a few days ago. How sad! After years of NCLB ‘reform’ and effort, we have come to this–lower standards on state tests. Perhaps more students pass, but with what skills really?
Where will this all end for the U.S.? Let’s hope New York’s current reformers–the state’s commissioner of education and the chancellor of the state board of education–will turn this thing around, as they hope to do.
There’s not that much time however. Since we don’t live in a bubble, what is the rest of the world doing–when it sees our goings on?
