An Unholy Alliance Against NCLB

This post from Gerald Bracey (Things Fall Apart) contains nothing new or unexpected in terms of anti-NCLB information but does -- as Joe Williams did last week -- highlight the current situation in which liberal opponents of the law like Bracey find themselves of a similar mind with conservative critics of the law like Checker Finn.

Of course, they want different things out of bashing NCBL -- Bracey wants a rollback, Finn wants national standards. And they both understand NCLB's limits differently -- Bracey has a wildly exaggerated view of the federal role and a sadly diminished sense of state and local agency. But talk about an unholy alliance.
