  • Jolisa,

    I already tweeted this, but: stalwart advocate (and sort of architect) of No Child Left Behind has come out against it:

    “Accountability, as written into federal law, [is] not raising standards but dumbing down the schools”

    Meanwhile, in school-land, the tests themselves are trundling along fairly painlessly. Helped massively by a week and a half without homework, a steady supply of cupcakes, a commitment to calming & distracting classroom activities in between the tests, and - the crucial bit - no more actual test prep.
