My opinion of NCLB is it is flawed, developmentally inappropriate, ill funded, ←and→ leaving more students, teachers, ←and→ schools behind than ever before because The tests have turned into the objective of classroom instruction rather than the measure of teaching ←and→ learning. Based on my experience, the current implication of NCLB is similar to teaching in a Korean classroom; teachers are teaching the test and the only thing that matters are the test results. Teaching to the test is the number one criticism by teachers and administrators. There is so much pressure on schools to achieve acceptable performance levels that test-taking has become a subject in itself. Everything academic revolves around the year-end state testing to the point that other subjects are usually neglected.

THORNTON MCCAMISH August 16, 2009 We like to think of ourselves as above class but inequality is well-developed in Australia and it's costing us all dearly. IF AUSTRALIA truly is a classless society, then someone forgot to tell Ja'mie King, star of the ABC TV mockumentary Summer Heights High. Inserted into an ordinary public high school for a semester, Ja'mie, ''the smartest non-Asian'' at Hilford Girls' College, finds herself in a blazerless wasteland. ''At public schools, the girls are skanks,'' she notes with dismay.
To Kill a Mockingbird should be banned from the educational system because, it discusses sexism and other mature content, uses vulgar and offensive language, and it deals with racism. “To Kill a Mockingbird” is part of numerous educational programs currently, even though it deals with mature matters. Young learners are discovering topics that are meant to be forgotten until a later point in their lives, when they are fully able to understand the consequences of our past. “To Kill a Mockingbird” should be banned from the educational system because it is far to advanced for many students to
This whole cut and dry teaching, what is wrong and what is right in education. But is this to say we are “dumbing down education” to meet standard test and better scores and rankings. The slang expression of “dumbing down” describes the deliberate diminishment of the intellectual level of the content of literature, film, schooling and education, news, and other aspects of culture. I believe that there are many factors why Americans rankings are so low. Education has dumbed down but there are so many different aspects of the situation, fingers pointed on why this has happened.
No Child Left behind Act– Final Tonza Simmons ENG 122 English Composition II Prof. Nancy Segovia May 19, 2014 No Child Left behind Act– Final The No Child Left behind Act is a form of modern day segregation that is providing youth with hopelessness to achieve. This law is a way of holding the disadvantaged hostage to oppression for years to come, due to the lack of education and comprehension skills. I believe that this law was created without really understanding the needs of all children across America. This act was and is more about a political agenda verses the betterment of America's children. Authors, John W. Borkowski and Maree Sneed, Harvard Educational Review, v76 n4 p503-525 Win (2006) suggested, "that there may be some
Non-metals cannot conduct electricity or heat very well. As opposed to metals, non-metal elements are very brittle, and cannot be rolled into wires. The non-metals exist in two of the three states of matter at room temperature gases and solids. Alkali Metals are made up of six different elements and are found in group one on the periodic table. These metals have only one electron in their outer shell.
