What happens next with NCLB won’t be determined by what position editorial pages take on the issue of multiple measures, but it’s interesting to note that several, including at least two more today, have decided that it’s worth taking a moment to talk about what direction the law is going to go and warning against a retreat on NCLB:
A Vote for ‘No Child’ Washington Post
To let states wriggle out of accountability on the basics would betray the mission of No Child Left Behind.
No Retreat From No Child Dallas Morning News
The last thing that students need is for Washington to turn school accountability into the educational equivalent of mashed potatoes.
If there are editorial pages out there coming out in favor of multiple measures, I’d be happy to show them, but so far at least I haven’t come across any.
