Required Reading if You Are a Teacher

or even if you are not (especially if you are a politician) is this piece by education historian Diane Ravitch about the history behind ESEA and how it got all twisted by the reform crowd thanks to NCLB and other reform crap.

ESEA was designed to help poor children in schools, not to pervert the purpose of federal involvement in education, not to put forward an excuse to give handouts to billionaires and Wall Street types so they can make even more money at the public's expense.
