Are our schools failing?


   According to the Department of Education, as many as 4 in 5 will fail to make adequate yearly progress this year.  So is this failing?

Personally I agree that NCLB NEEDS to be changed, but saying that 82% of schools will fail to meet AYP under NCLB (acronyms are fun!) is just abusing statistics.

It's not the schools that are failing.  The answers are WAY more complex than that, as are the solutions.

I am a concerned individual in the Rockford, Illinois area and I have had enough of the problems in this area. Thus I vent and hope that others can vent as well.
