One thing you didn't say was that the NCLB asks for an impossibility: 100% proficiency for each school by a certain year (2014?). That is impossible. No human is exactly like the other. All have differing abilities.
I feel sorry for the schools who have students with profound difficulties, where moving a finger is considered a major achievement for a particular child. How do they measure proficiency? Will those schools be closed down for failing the FCAT?
