NCLB Outrages

Congratulations. Now Let's Step up the Resistance

Yes, NEA should, but for action keep your eye on EliminateNCLB.

Ken Goodman

We should all be congratulating ourselves that we stopped a cosmetic renewal of NCLB. Putting it off until after new year's puts it squarely in the Presidential primaries. Now is the time to call for mass demonstrations and resistence to NCLB. NEA should lead the way for a million educators and parents to come to Washington to tell Congress to undo the damage NCLB is doing.

NEA and the other professional organizations should be telling its members to resist: to refuse to test, refuse to DIBELS, refuse to limit the curriculum to reading, math and test preparation.
