For those who have lost touch with the real world of teachers, students and parents, this time of year is the most hectic of all. School just started, people are trying to refocus their schedules, and there is very little time to deal with any other issues.
Surely Congress didn't intend to put out a draft of the NCLB bill for teachers, knowing that most real teachers wouldn't have time to look it over? It makes you wonder how separated from reality these people in Congress really are. I can't imagine that they planned to put this draft out to the public when the people most affected by it are so busy beginning a new shool year.
Congressional leaders, can you spell, N'er Do Well? Ill timed and ill conceived management of the people's business just makes you wonder why citizen approval ratings of Congress are so low, doesn't it? LORL
The leaders of the House education committee today released a draft of a plan for reauthorizing the No Child Left Behind Act, outlining proposals that would revise how adequate yearly progress is calculated and overhaul the interventions for schools failing to meet achievement goals.
Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., and Rep. Howard P. “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif., said that they were inviting comments from educators so that they can incorporate their ideas into the bill they hope to introduce shortly after Labor Day.
