"..classroom time is now spent on preparing for tests..."

Sounds a bit like learning.

NCLB is just a way for the Feds to see if they are getting their moneys worth. They spend a lot per student and should know if the student is learning anything. It costs the school one day a year for the test. Everything on the test is what the student is supposed to be learning anyway.
