3. Teachers can do a LOT. They just can't fix...
...everything and it takes time, commitment and great effort for teachers to have an impact. Problem is, NCLB undermines that...because it targets (as ineffective) the very teachers, usually in Title I schools, who are doing that very challenging work.

Teachers can, and are, making a big difference. But they are now leaving IN DROVES...or rejecting a career in education altogether...because of the punitive nature of NCLB/ESEA. (And it doesn't matter what it's called. )
