Again it takes years to see if programs of this magnitude are working. No child left behind wass put in place amid much fanfare but wasn't deemed a failure until several states started reviewing results several years later. New York just released it's first batch of test results.
The indications are that this program may not be all it's cracked up to be.
I have no problem with our local board trying to slow it down if in fact it's a program that might NOT work.
