No Child Left Behind To Be Tweaked?

This is interesting:

A panel on the No Child Left Behind Act recommended that teacher performance be part of the equation when it comes to measuring success in schools.

A high-school teacher friend and I had EXACTLY that discussion about 30 years ago. It was, ah, "spirited," because he was a true-blue Union guy and I wasn't. But it was civil.

Now "!!Tommy!!" has the idea?

About time.

By the way, it's not at all certain that No Child Left Behind will be renewed, although odds are that it will. Many (R) folk in Congress still view it as an arrogant and not-particularly-Constitutional infringement on States' (and locals') rights.

Ironically, the most fervent WEAC blogger (folkbum) has doubts about NCLB, too.
