The Nation Does NCLB

The Nation has a new issue out today looking at No Child Left Behind 5 years later; The synopsis from the two big pieces in the issue: "With US schools lagging far behind in the world in educational outcomes, the question isn't whether or not "No Child" is working. The question is what do we really need out of an educational system?" Linda Darling- Hammond, Professor of Education at Stanford University, visits the promise and problems of "No Child," and offers a blueprint for moving forward. A panel of experts on education policy, Pedro Noguera, Velma Cobb & Deborah Meier debate Darling-Hammond's proposal, offering a detailed and comprehensive look at No Child Left Behind. Let me know if there's anything unexpected or interesting.
