reply from sister in quotations:Example: Kids from horredously dysfunctional families, who act out with>violence, are thrown in with the general student population. So a teacher>has thirty students and two"try 6 or 7!" of them are budding terrorists, but what does>she have as tools to deal with the terrorists.>>I am perfectly aware that NCLB does not deal with these problems. But>neither has the traditional school systems. And they just go on an on buried>in the abysmal academic statistics."our district was making some gains and improvements in a lot of ways. All that is LEFT BEHIND now in a scramble to "improve test scores". The main problem in our district is that the students don't speak, read, and write enough English to take the tests they are forced to take. The years they were allowed to take the test in Spanish, they scored well. But no, that's not allowed under NCLB. The focus is English as soon as possible. There is no way to teach English and everything else in the limited time we have. Our school day has increased by 45 minutes a day and only English, Math, PE, and ESL are addressed. No time for Science, Social Studies, Health, or any of the arts." NCLN is an attempt at a universal>measurement of how bad things are in our schools. States are recoiling>because the states don't want to foot the bill to correct them."PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rest assured it has nothing to do with this. See above."Respectfully,JnE
