Left Behind to Write

It’s that time of year when I’m drowning in essays and thinking about the fate of the world at the same time. Today I thought about “No Child Left Behind.” I’m grateful that I don’t teach in that environment. Unfortunately, my students are a product of that environment, and it shows in their writing. Having to teach grammar in college to me insults the potential intelligence of  America’s children.


Get it right about education, and do it fast. Because “no child left behind” really means every child left behind.
