The NCLB supposedly set accountability standards and goals for schools in the hope that measuring failure would lead to improvements. More than three-quarters of the nation's public schools could soon be labeled "failing" under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, the Obama administration said Wednesday as it increased efforts to revamp the signature education initiative of President George W.
We should get out of the business of labeling schools as failures and create a new law that is fair and flexible and focused on the schools and students most at risk. So what are the onerous proficiency standards that the NCLB required public schools to meet?
The Times gives an example: When it took effect inthe law required states to outline the year statistical path they would follow in bringing all students to proficiency by California, for example, had only 14 percent of students proficient in reading inbut it promised to raise that level in every school by a few points each year.
Moms remember that stuff, and if her mom is happy, that means her dad will be happy. So basically you're already winning and all you did was show up with a gift. Dress To Impress In just about any scenario, it's usually better to be overdressed than underdressed.
In this particular situation, that extra effort will most definitely be appreciated. Dressing well shows that you value yourself and respect your company. The first time my now-husband met my parents, he was dressed as if we were going out on a nice date and he brought my mom an orchid. She whispered, 'Marry that man' to me.
Do Your Homework The best way to avoid finding yourself in an awkward conversation with her parents where you accidentally bring up a sore spot is to do your homework in advance, and have an honest conversation with your lady about what not to bring up around her family.
Get a feel for their sense of humor, tolerance for slang or vulgar language, other personal sensitivities such as age. Ask your significant other, with the explanation that you want to make the best impression to her parents. I think it's a common question to ask, but it inevitably starts a whole speech from all of my older in-laws about how my sister's time will come and all of that.
If that conversation was going to get started again, I didn't want the new guy I was introducing to my family to be the one to bring it up. Mind Your Manners It's important to keep in mind that every household operates a little bit differently in terms of what's acceptable and what's considered rude.
So make sure you get on the same page with your S. The first time my boyfriend met my family he picked up on this, and made it a point to make sure my grandma had everything she needed right there in front of her at the table, refilling what she was drinking and serving her food. It actually became a bit of a joke, and he started pretending to be her butler toward the middle of the meal, and he started referring to him as Jeeves!
It definitely scored him some major brownie points.
