The pressure is on at schools across America. In recent years, reform efforts have created a new vision of education that emphasizes provable results, uniformity, and greater attention for floundering students. Schools are expected to behave more like businesses and judged almost solely on the bottom line: test scores. To see if this world is producing better students, Linda Perlstein immersed herself in a suburban Maryland elementary school, providing the first detailed view of how new education policies are modified by human realities.. The school, once deemed a failure, is now held up as an example of reform done right. Nine-year-olds meditate before exams and kindergartners write paragraphs. Teachers attempt to address diverse needs but feel compelled to focus on topics that will be tested at the expense of those that won't. Perlstein explores the rewards and costs of that transformation, through the experiences of the people who lived it.--From publisher description.… (més)

Will our school do well this year on the state-mandated tests? That question seems to dominate every decision made in every school in our country these days. Perlstein visits a typical disadvantaged school to take a close look at testing and the day-to-day events in a school that lead up to testing. It is not a happy picture. All the fun activities of school---projects, experiments, student group interaction, even recess---are sacrified at the altar of testing preparation. For this school, the sacrifice pays off; the school does well on the tests. But an observer must ask, At what cost? ( )

This was a fairly glossy 'expose' on what it's like to be in an at-risk school under No Child Left Behind. But still, it's good to see that someone is trying to report the reality to the world at large. ( )

Balanced and clear-headed investigation of the effects of No Child Left Behind Act on one public school in Anne Arundel Co., MD. Written by a former Washington Post journalist who imbedded in the school for a year, the book is incredibly readable, sometimes funny, sometimes heart-breaking. Great book because it leaves the rhetoric and politics behind to focus on the lives of real teachers and children. Read it and make up your own mind about No Child Left Behind -- surely a piece of legislation that has had a huge impact on the lives of many poor and disadvantaged students. You can decide if the impact is for good or bad.....if you are interested in kids and education I highly recommend this. ( )
