You should be listening to the John Merrow Education Podcast

By far, the best educational podcast that I listen to weekly is the John Merrow Education Podcast. This week he interviews the leading researcher on NCLB who can give you the positives and negatives of the act.

If you want to talk in a meaningful way about NCLB and its impact - you can see that although NCLB seems to be helping the worst of the worst it may be pulling the higher level kids down. You need to listen to this podcast!

"NCLB is a noble way to raise the floor for children."
They also discuss how it has turned many schools into "test prep" centers rather than places for learning.

As teachers and educators, we have the immeasurable opportunity to listen to such amazing interviews as they come out. Please listen.
