"Toothaches, Global Warming, and the Iraq War."
I thought the topic Was Education, Alex?
It is. Do you want me to repeat the answer?
You better, Alex, I'm confused.
Ok, "Toothaches, Global Warming, and the Iraq War."
No idea, Alex.
Do any of the other contestants know the question?
Crickets, crickets, crickets.
The question was "What are three popular reasons anti-NCLB educrats give for being against standardized testing?"
No, really. I'm serious.
Go check out Professor Dana Rapp's arguments in the ongoing Edspresso debate going on this week. You'll especially like when the website editor, Ryan Boots, had to request that he stay a little more focused standardized testing arguments--to which the good professor responded that no, in fact, those were his arguments.
And, don't think for a minute that the professor is just some lone nutter. We have our own little NCLB/standardized testing debate going on here and here. And, guess what? Our anti-NCLBer is making the same arguments! Coincidence? I think not.
And, we have a little something Edspresso doesn't, our ant-NCLBer is hurling around such delightful epithets as "racist," "Nazi," and "Hitler." Beat that, Edspresso!
Update: And at least my anti-NCLBer showed up for work today.
