<>~~~~~<>~~~~~<>~~~~~<>~~~~~<> Student Debt The Lost Purpose of School Reform Diane Ravitch http://www.nybooks.com/blogs/nyrblog/2015/apr/02/lost-purpose-no-child-left-behind/"NCLB decisively changed the purpose of the law. What had once been a means of sending additional resources to schools enrolling poor students was turned into a testing mandate. By law, all students, regardless of disability or language proficiency, must be “proficient” on state tests by 2014. Congress and the Bush administration believed that their mandate could produce universal success in school, akin to passing a law proclaiming that all crime should cease by a date certain. Note to Congress: if wishes (or congressional mandates) were horses, then beggars would ride. Not surprisingly, it didn’t work."
richard branson: "It is possible that school is not necessary. I left school at 15."
