Thoughts on Teaching: Sometimes Apologies Are Not Enough
Starnes, Bobby Ann
Phi Delta Kappan, v85 n10 p796 Jun 2004
This author believes the NCLB is a masterpiece of language manipulation. She feels that she can almost live with NCLB's flawed funding and unrealistic expectations. What she can't live with is its blatant failure and the hubris of those who willingly trade personal and political gain for our children's futures, regardless of skin color, accent, or where they live.
