After 25 Years of Education Reform, NAEP Results Down

Since Ronald Reagan began the war on public education, school has become an increasingly unpleasant and miseducative place to learn and to work.  With the coming of corporatists' NCLB and RTTT, children have learned less and suffered more, humane teachers have been run out of the profession, and we now have corporate know-nothings in charge of schools where learning needs are the most severe.

Is there anything to recommend another 30 years of testing, segregation, and corporate control?  Please let me know if there is.

Here is a useful overview of the latest NAEP results for 12th graders.  Links are provided in the video:
