What A Difference A Day Makes: Two Views of the CEP Report

Two fundamentally different interpretations of the CEP report on NCLB implementation are apparent when comparing Sunday's NYT piece (Schools Cut Back Subjects to Push Reading and Math) and today's NPR piece (Reading and Math Gain Ground with Education Law)

From the NYT: "Thousands of schools across the nation are responding to the No Child Left Behind law’s reading and math testing requirements by reducing class time spent on other subjects and, for some low-proficiency students, eliminating it."

From NPR: "New research shows that the No Child Left Behind law is changing the way individual schools work. Many schools say they're giving greater emphasis to reading and math than before. But some educators worry that other subjects are getting short shrift."
