The “War Report” Radio Show: False Promise of NCLB for Public Education

Leave No Child Behind is a moniker appropriated from the military’s “Leave No Man Behind.” Perhaps the moniker belies the mindset of the authors of high-stakes testing and accountability policies, because we are in the middle of a “war” for public education with the privateers— those seeking to profit from our education system.

This past weekend I joined Dr. James Avington Miller, Jr,James_Miller_new-sm a public education advocate, activist, professor, teacher and independent scholar, on his radio show the “The War Report.” His show is about the corporate war on public education and the rising public resistance movement in the war.

    Thank you for this good work. I have been tracking federal policy since the reforms spawned by the post-Sputnik National Defense Education Act.
    Interested in knowing how long you have had a post at the U of T in Austin. My nephew was a policy wonk there until his untimely death. Gary Chapman–called an ethicist in the computer world. He would have been proud to know you.
