Read educational researcher and author Alfie Cohen's recent Opinion 
in the New York Times
on the failure of standardized teaching and assessment.

"The standards-and-accountability movement is not about leaving no child behind. 
To the contrary, it is an elaborate sorting device, intended to separate wheat from chaff. 
The fact that students of color, students from low-income families and students whose first language isn’t English are disproportionately defined as chaff makes the whole enterprise even more insidious."
