A teacher/blogger from New York City expresses how she feels about teaching in a school that has been labeled as needing “corrective action” under the No Child Left Behind Act. “I’m proud to have 80 percent ELLs in my class,” she writes. “The media always puts down these ‘underperforming’ schools and it’s so sad that my school has been categorized this way.” (Hat tip to GothamSchools)
