This Web site and the monthly e-mail publication No Child Left
are committed to the repeal or drastic amendment of NCLB
before it works irreparable harm on the public education system with its rash experiments and over-regulation of public schools.
How ironic that politicians, quick to complain about federal regulations to protect the environment from polluters or regulations to protect consumers and pensions from corporate fraud, climbed on a bandwagon to regulate schools.
While NCLB pretends to champion disadvantaged children, the law is likely to condemn those students to educational poverty, narrowing goals to focus upon basic reading and math skills. The impact of this simplistic approach to school reform is likely to be devastating - depriving a generation of children of their democratic birth right.
