No Child Left Behind

Full story: NewsTimes.com

Not enough students at some Danbury schools are improving fast enough on math and reading tests to satisfy the federal government.

Non English speaking students are dragging down the education process for the rest of the students.

The No Child Left Behind Law's concept of "adequate yearly progress" is fatally flawed. It requires every school to make improvements in test scores regardless of the existing scores at the school. It makes no distinction between schools that have excellent teachers and those that don't.

Let me explain by way of analogy. Suppose we ranked coaches of runners by the yearly improvement made by the athletes that they coached. Obviously, young athletes who showed little improvement over time had bad coaches.

But what of the coach of US Olympic sprinters? If that coach coached world class athletes -- even a world record holder -- one would expect to see very little improvement by his/her athletes.(There isn't much room for improvement at that level.)

Do we punish the Olympic coach for failing to get his world class athletes to shave a second or two off of their times (which is impossible), while praising the high school coach who can condition an initially out of shape freshman and after a season produce a trained athlete?

Do we punish the coach for failing to get a physically disabled student to run at a speed that he will never be able to run because of his disability?

Do we pretend that all students can run equally fast -- that the only difference between them is their coaches?

Do we praise the elite regional coach whose athletes are individually selected from within a multi-town district and are the very best in their schools?(After all, he is getting great results, albeit with athletes who would do well with any coach.)

Do we punish the Special Olympics coach whose athletes are not "elite" by state standards? Or do we punish a coach whose team doesn't have the facilities and training equipment available to other competing teams?

I don't know of a way to quantify what teachers -- or coaches -- do. They begin with youngsters of varying talents and strive to get them to improve -- to learn, to perform.

Depending on a student's talents and interests, the student improves. The degree of improvement is based in part on the ability of the teacher, in part on the ability and interest of the student, in part on other factors (parental involvement, family income, available school facilities etc).

To put on blinders and say that performance is based solely on a teacher, or a school system, is absurd.

There has to be a better way then this ridiculous fantasy that numbers tell all.

I don't have children and I rarely follow these issues, figuring that the public education scene these days is more depressing or aggravating than I care to know about.

That said, what I'm wondering is whether this whole situation results in kids being "taught the test" all year, as opposed to being given a more comprehensive and well thought out education. Having just finished watching the incredible 4th season of The Wire which is very much about this kind of situation, that's exactly what occurred to me as I read this.

Our future is very bleak after subjecting teachers and unsuspecting children to 8 years of the NCLB nonsense. Combined with the vast increase of autism cases thanks to vaccines - we are so screwed.

The PC name of No Child Left Behind is How Can We Dumb Down Children So That They Can Be More Receptive To Christianity, or No Child Will Be Left Behind When The Rapture Comes.

In concept, No Child Left Behind made sense, but the costs of many of the programs are expensive and the money is not forthcoming from the government to fund these 'mandates.'
In NY, the funding is nill and the taxes based on home value are chasing people out of the state.

Pedo Bob can't abide a thread that won't address his favorite "topix" of nude boys, forced boy nudity,bare-assed spanking of boys, and the,sexual abuse of boys. And the coward posts from Dorval (Montreal)Canada under my name with a slight spelling change. He expects that nobody will notice that it's really pusillanimous pussy-hearted Pedo Bob trying yet again to hide while he pursues, again, his brazenly bent homosexual fetish and pedophile fantasies. All Canadians, particularly those with young male children, must feel very fortunate that he lives among them.

Its now "no child left undrugged !"

IMPORTANT NOTE TO PARENTS:

Parents are being mislead by a multi billion-dollar a year child drugging industry that a diagnoses of "mental disorder" (ADHD, Bi-Polar, Social Anxiety Disorder) are medical diseases or illnesses. This is a fraud. No child has a brain scan, blood test, X-Ray or any evidence of physical abnormality to verify they are "ill" or "diseased."

Yet psychiatrists continue to pound the public with misleading and fraudulent statements that these so called mental disorders are biochemical or neurological conditions. That is false. They are simply a list of behaviors that psychiatrists vote into existence and insert into their billing bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

The State of Connecticut is refusing to release Sandy Hook gunman Adam Lanza’s medical records over fears that divulging the identity of the antidepressants he was taking would,“cause a lot of people to stop taking their medications,” according to Assistant Attorney General Patrick B. Kwanashie.

At least no child stripped this time, djw.
LineDazzle stop trying to fight me & email the offending schools I have mentioned previously and then go to Rochdale and picket St Michael's School until they provide gender justice for boys who are too small to defend themselves. All other St Michael's schools across the country allow boys to wear t-shirts and shorts but this one in Rochdale:

http://www.stmichaelscemidd.rochdale.sch.uk/o ...

8. For P.E. boys are expected to wear shorts. Girls should wear knickers and vest (young infants and all Reception children), shorts and white t-shirt or black leotard (older infants and juniors.) Children will do P.E. in pumps or bare feet.

How do they justify this rule. Boys are expected to wear shorts and possibly pumps on their feet but says nothing about knickers and vest for boys.

Why cant boys wear shorts and t-shirts? If girls can wear black leotards why cant boys wear black leotards with shorts on top like at professional gymnastic academies?

It seems the dead hand of Cyril Smith MP is still alive in working class male Rochdale and we all know what that "liberal MP" done to boys in children homes!

I wonder what the female teachers who often run these primary schools would do if they were forced to turn up to lessons in just a pair of shorts.

They would be going straight to their Trade Unions, go on strike and sue the local authority under the Equalities Act 2010. Well Sex Discrimination laws apply to all services and Education is a service. Equal protection for males and girls doesn't come into force at aged 18, children are covered as well.

For The Fallen of the Communal shower

With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her bare children,
England mourns for her child victims across the school nude killing spree.

Flesh of their nude flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the Maltamaniac cause of the clothes free.

Solemn the bare bums thrill; Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal breast spheres,
There is music in the midst of masturbation
And a glory that shines upon our Penis-sylvanian Queers.

They went with songs to the changing rooms, they were pre-pubescent,

Straight of penis, true of japs eye, steady and testicles aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their feaces to the pe teaching foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow impotent & old:
Premature ejaculation shall not weary them, nor the vice squad condemn.

At the going down of the semi erect member and in the flacid morning We will remember them.

They mingle not with their turned on rugby comrades again;
They shit no more at familiar private shower stalls of home;
They have no lot in our child labour of the school play-time;
They sleep beyond England's soapy naked foam.

But where our Phil's sexual desires are and our anus holes profound,

Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from our prying eyes sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the porn stars are known to the Ladies of the Night;

As the naked swimming stars that shall be bright when we are semen crust,
Moving in stripping school marches upon the heavenly pe field plain;

As the young porn stars that are starry in the time of our Linedazzle's seedy darkness,
To the end, to the end, they stripped to the skin they remain.

At the going down of the sun on the 11th day of the 11th school Month the Maltamaniac shall remember them. Yes Phil that includes the Manchester Grammar school. Lest you forget!

This sexually and socially dysfunctional freak cannot elicit any positive responses to his own pedophilic postings, so he creates and posts his own positive responses
