    What is the educational theme in this country?

    Education is now more:

    * testing
    * accountability
    * assessing and comparing students around the country
    * feds controlling teaching objectives
    * feds enforcing teaching strategies, and methods
    * feds controlling, and bullying education with the use of test scores, and funding.
    * about mandates and looking over your shoulders to see if you comply

    Having talked to many teachers, I find this to be a true account of what's going on. Unfortunately, when students fall behind, it's teachers who take the blame.
