Time to Leave Behind No Child Left Behind

Thank you, James Battaglia for this thoughtful stance on the mental and emotional genocide against America's children. A clip:
For example, employers know that an employee is more than a single score on a single test-- that's why the job interview exists. In addition to test scores, job recruiters are interested in other intangibles such as problem-solving skills, organizational ability and willingness to work as part of a team. The idea of alternate forms of assessment seems to be lost on politicians supporting this law.
