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.
