NCLB Outrages

A Query: Can You Help?

Note from Susan:

I received this e-mail, which is heartbreaking, a new administrator who fears that career change may be her/his only option.

Does anyone out there know of a principal support group for coping with--and fighting--NCLB?

Dear Susan,

I am a beginning administrator and am struggling with NCLB. Do you know of support groups for administrators who want to fight/lead against the testing mania. My dilemna is How can I be a principal of a school and not be supportive of this wave of testing?

Any feedback you have is most appreciated -- I am thinking of changing careers!!
