Is Little Bill Clinton Failing or is the Test Failing Him?

I mention over at Learning the Language that reporters for the Christian Science Monitor have found a refugee kid named Bill Clinton Hadam in Georgia and are following him for a series "Little Bill Clinton: A school year in the life of a new American."

One of the latest installments of the series, "Who's failing—the student or the test?," explores what's at fault in that a school doesn't get credit in adequate yearly progress calculations under the No Child Left Behind Act for the progress of an English-language learner such as little Bill Clinton.
