PBS’s John Merrow isn’t the first to put NCLB in the context of the war in Iraq, but he does have some interesting things to say: “As the law enters its sixth year, “staying the course” would be disastrous for public education and, eventually, American society. But a “surge” strategy won’t save the No Child Left Behind Act either. Washington insiders say there’s no rush to reauthorize the law, particularly with a presidential campaign already under way. We ought to use the time to debate the kind of education we want for our children, an opportunity that should not be missed.” (A ‘Surge’ Strategy for No Child Left Behind?)
