NCLB Reauthorization Recommendations

In an article in today’s Washington Post, a bipartisan commission dealing with the reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind law released a series of recommendations that require…yes, more testing.

Here we go again folks…

Recommendations include creating new national standards and national exams. Teachers would be subject to sanctions with poorly performing students. H.S. seniors would be required to be proficient in both reading and math and all schools held accountable for raising test scores in science by 2014.

The lawmakers like it, they’re the ones that don’t have to take the tests. The unions despise it, calling the current NCLB act “challenging enough.”

What do you think?
