  1. Agree. But keep in mind that NCLB does not require a specific standard – only that a standard is used and accountability with respect to that standard.

    States themselves have to actually implement ANY standard ACROSS their entire state and thats also an example of a lot of different players involved and the standard itself once implemented saves time and money and provides a consistent state-wide teaching and learning environment that benefits both teachers who can move around the state and still use the same standard and kids who can move around the state – and pick up where they left off at the previous school or at least fairly easily determined by the new school.

    Now imagine teachers and students in Wyoming, Texas and New York all have that same advantage.

    that’s the benefit that’s worth pursuing.
