Obama School Event In Colorado

At the Wednesday event, Obama regurgitated the (inaccurate) slam that NCLB relies on a "a single,

high-stakes test," according to this report (Obama tours Colorado school, touts education plans EdWeek) and did the whole curriculum narrowing thing, too, about which I have my doubts.

He's also proposing a national service-type thing that to my eye

looks an awful lot like a federal version of TFA. Just what schools

(and school reform) doesn't need -- more FNG short-timers making

everyone feel good about high-need schools (Full text of Obama's education speech). Yeah, I'm against that.
