Our students keep drowning in the shallow end of the education pool.

No Child Left Behind, the legislative leviathan of test scores and achievement rubrics, has been deemed broken by both Kentucky state education commissioner, our local superintendent and Anderson County’s instructional supervisor.
For good reason.
NCLB standards are next to impossible to please. Essentially, school progress is measured pass/fail so that schools must reach 100 percent in reading and math, or perish.
