"No Child Left Behind" ~ Article Critique

Colleagues -- please note and critique my interpretation of the AJC blog below.

A School Superintendent reviews a decade of results from the "No Child Left Behind" legislation. Though it should not matter, he is a white male Georgian from Mitchell County.

From a analytical viewpoint, note this reality which nullifies 1954 Brown v. Board of Education.

That decision, shaped in no small part by 1950s Cold War geo-politics, was a momentary departure.

If you educate any children (or any generations) now or in the future, must deal with new reality.

When I was a young 26, my elder Ben Duster of Chicago (grandson of activist Ida B. Wells) told me that America has always has known successful education methods. The question was not how, but why.
