More NCLB…

Brink revisits this issue. Two quick thoughts. First, we’re still debating a fictitious bill. NCLB won’t, for instance, require children to be held back that’s another urban myth. Second, on polls, the Joint Center poll has only one NCLB question, you can find it buried in here (pdf), and Eduwonk’s leery of any question that says “federal government’s” as part of the question. Here’s another poll (it’s from some front group or another but you can see the poll itself) of 1000 registered voters but African-Americans are underrepresented. Few months old, mixed results, margin of error +/-3. Anyway, enough on this. The polls say about anything right now depending on how the questions are asked.
