Have you seen this excellent blog post from the White House? Notice what's going on in the photo: students showing off their ART PROJECTS!
But the point of the post is that Obama has plans to fix NCLB! Yayy! Loud applause all around! Read about it here:
My favorite quote is this:
“Every day in this country, teachers are doing a heroic job for their kids -- (applause) -- every day. They’re taking on the problems that follow students into class, come in early to re-write lessons, spending hours after school tutoring students. I know; my sister is a teacher. In South Korea, teachers are known as “nation builders,” and I think it’s time we treated our teachers with the same level of respect right here in the United States of America.”
...Wisconsin, are you listening?
