NCLB progress in Alabama

An editorial in Alabama’s Montgomery Advertiser commends progress in Alabama schools toward achieving standards under the No Child Left Behind Act.

Alabama public schools made huge strides toward meeting national No Child Left Behind accountability standards, with 1,194 of the state’s 1,364 schools making “Adequate Yearly Progress” toward a goal of having every child in the state and in the nation performing at proficiency levels in reading and math by 2014.

That’s 87.5%.

    NCLB is a noble idea at best, but the administrators (bureaucratics) don’t have their finger on the pulse of the REAL problem…their neat studies don’t account for many of the reasons why the schools are lacking in the first place…to paraphrase “it’s economics, stupid!”
