    I'm sure this is discussed in your text. I'm also sure that you were assigned this question to ascertain how much of the text you've read and comprehended.

    Since apparently you want to go into education as a career, it's extremely important that you understand these principles.

    We'll be glad to critique your answer.

    Ok, I understand that that the NCLB was made to make sure that all are NOT left behind in the education field. That all children have a chance to improve test scores and to improve their skills before they give up hope. I understand that (in my opinion) if this law did not exist, many students will be 'thrown to the waist side'..

    I agree. You have a good start.

    Now you need to go into detail about how each of the principles might affect learners.

    Strong accountability means test scores. Teachers must teach those things that will be tested. Does this emphasis upon test scores take away some of the extras that help make students well-rounded?

    How do you judge "well-qualified" teachers? I've known of several excellent elementary teachers with B and C college grades who nonetheless went above and beyond to teach their students.

    Take it from there . . .

    When I discuss teachers, I guess I base my opinions on those that my oldest son had in school. A 'well-qualified' teacher is a person that goes above and beyond what they are required to do(by law) to ensure that their students are getting the right tools and knowledge to succeed. Not just what is in the books.

  • AED -

    Right.

    Look just as carefully at each principle. Ask yourself exactly what does each mean? Expanded flexibility and control???

  • AED -

    I mean, does that make sense? When I say above and beyond, I mean REALLY getting to know these elementary students, finding out their likes/dislikes, their needs not their wants, seeing how they feel about life at home and showing that they care. For example, when I become a teacher, and I have a student that does not have the ability to have school supplies purchased or if they have shoes with holes or no book bag, I want them to feel that I can be there for them...not just to teach.

    Great! You have the makings of a wonderful teacher.
