Please Sign the Petition to End NCLB

The Educator Roundtable has just put up their petition to dismantle the turkey of all education legislation, NCLB. Check it out here.

Please do support the effort by signing and giving $10.40 to the Educator Roundtable. The first 17,000 of us to give will purchase the first full-page ad in the New York Times calling for the end of the NCLB charade.

And Happy Thanksgiving.

    Just came across your blog via the Educational Round Table 'linked' version of the petition. I just posted the petition on my blog with an extended plea for readers to sign.

    The post includes a link to a great analysis by Richard Rothstein of NCLB's proficiency for all mandate. He calls it an oxymoron. It's long but well worth reading.

    Anyway, great blog, Jim!
