I spent 14 years serving on the local school board of Thomas County. The local level is best equipped to know what works and doesn't work while educating our children. Washington bureaucrats don't have a clue about the differences in schools and communities across South Georgia, let alone across the United States.
No Child Left Behind hasn't worked, is not working, and will not work I will work for an immediate repeal of this misguided plan that has dumbed down the classroom, created a mountain of extra paperwork for educators, and put most schools in the position of teaching for the test! The federal Department of Education is one agency that could be completely abolished, saving the federal government billions of dollars while allowing teachers to do what they do best .TEACH!
