    like that  if they really knew it was happening. Unfortunately the "public" this plays to are generally political types with little or any stake in the result - except to build their own careers. In some places parents are becoming aware and protesting but the media still prefers to scream about "lazy" & "incompetent" teachers as if there were some way to actually make this approach work to the benefit of students.

    At my granddaughter's school these past 2+ weeks there have been no actual classes - just testing & practice for testing. The kids are bored, anxious, miserable & some are starting to act out just to get out of the room. It was bad enough with NCLB in 06 when I retired. It appears to be worse now.

    Where are we going and what am I doing in this handbasket?
