    Worse thing to ever happen to education was the no child left behind act.

    I've been doing my job for almost 20 years. the NCLB took my job as a teacher and changed it into a "make sure they pass the test" position.

    The tests these kids take are horrible to start with. The whole thing needs to be thrown out the window and let each state decide what is best.

    Better yet, take the state out of it as well and leave it to your LOCAL district to decide what is best for THEIR kids.

    We've all seen what our state legislators involved with education have done and none of it is good.
