18. Well
my son who is a high school History teacher hates NCLB and the testing. Although he hates it he has received awards evry year for having the highest number pass. You are exactly right TayTay it is teaching the test, no more no less.

He went into teaching because he didn't like the way he was being taught, and I'll tell yeah some of the oldie but goodies don't like his style, but he says screw them it works. He allows his kids to eat in the classroom,(he'll say ask the janitor who has the cleanest classroom) and God forbid he lets them listen to music (this is only if they are doing classwork, not when he is teaching), and to nip in the bud being interrupted over and over agin with "Can I go to the bathroom" God forbid he has a whole class bathroom break, oh they really don't like that. My favorite thing is that he painted a spatula gold, and when his students aren't paying attention, he'll pull that out and say is this what you want to do for the rest of your life.

After his first year of teaching 85 parents called asking for their kids to be put in his class the following year, and that has continued, he is now in his 4th year of teaching, and he loves it. But most importantly his students are learning and that is what counts.
