How much?

This, a twitter from Diane Ravitch about an hour ago.
The case against NCLB: no gain in NAEP reading scores for 8th graders from 1998 to 2009. The NCLB generation. Billions wasted.

Small comfort. Obama's Race to the Top is little more than re-branded NCLB funded to the hilt. More tax dollars being shoveled into a money sink that is pointless.

Our educators lecture us about math and science yet are incapable of actually using it themselves. And accountability is for other people's failures not programs like NCLB that have empirically done more harm than good for children.

Billions. Educational Fraud. No relief in sight.

What a country.
