27. The teachers in my family...
were discussing NCLB on Mother's Day. The 3 of them (sister, brother-in-law, and niece) were all outraged at the stupid law and what it's doing to their jobs and their schools.

Maine had a very strong Learning Results program and NCLB requires them to lower standards and penalize the schools that were doing fantastic jobs.

Laura is an embarrassment to educated women, I'm sorry to say.
