Give me a break!
The kids who want to learn DO receive a great education.
The kids who don't want to learn would do a lot better to get their degree by computer and get out of the classroom so the students who DO want to learn could learn even more.
Two/thirds of the teachers' time is spent disciplining trouble-makers and their hands are tied even trying to discipline because most of the time these kids do nothing anyway. America's education is in a sorry state of affairs and it's NOT the teacher's fault the test scores are not higher.
Oh, and by the way, just in case nobody has noticed, NCLB has not worked and will not work even if it is called by another name.
