How do you feel about No Child Left Behind and the increasing emphasis on test scores to evaluate students and teachers?
Do you agree with the idea of balanced accountability advocated in the article?
Do you think the goals of education should be as broadly construed as they are written in the article?
A common theme in the materials we have read, viewed, and discussed revolves around nostalgia (a yearning/longing for) of the traditional, nuclear family structure (mother, father, son, daughter, dog, and a white picket fence).
What are a few of the major impacts of this nostalgia, especially when it is misplaced or uninformed, as Coontz argues it is in “What We Really Miss about the 1950s?”
Please use concrete evidence to support your argument.
