A few months ago, I was a little miffed at the good folks over at New Talk for hosting a discussion on what to do with the No Child Left Behind Act in which the moderator immediately put scrapping the law off‐limits. How things have changed! Today through Thursday New Talk is hosting a discussion specifically asking whether the law should be canned. It’s an especially timely topic given some developing ideological battles, and a topic worth contemplating in its own right. So check out the New Talk. Not the same as the Old Talk!
