Totally agreed. This No child Left Behind and even the Race To The Top are all dumb policies, putting all the weight on teachers whithout ever blaming a student for his own failure.
There is no minimum GPA a student should have to stay in a public school.when a student fails, the first person the administration goes after is the teacher.
Parents and administrators are hanging teachers while students sit there enjoying comfort in the failure culture that is bieng fed around them.
