Time to Kill 'No Child Left Behind'

It is too late to tweak NCLB. Seven years after it was signed into law, it is clear that the program deserves to be buried.

Diane Ravitch of Education Week wrote a great piece about the No Child Left Behind policy, and how in the long run no even time 'can repair this poorly designed law':

    In long-term trends, the achievement gap between white and minority students has hardly budged over the past decade. Although average scores are up for 9-year-olds and 13-year-olds in reading and mathematics between 2004 and 2008, the rate of improvement is actually smaller than it was in the previous period measured, from 1999 to 2004.

    It is time to ask whether NCLB should be renewed. I argue that it should not. What will President Barack Obama and his administration do with the law?

    Has anyone sent this article (or any of the research-based articles that point out the horrors of NCLB) to Arne Duncan?
