Letter: A poem about No Child Left Behind

Every child can learn

They have God's DNA

They are wired to be inspired

No matter what people say.

The No Child Left Behind Law

Was never intended to be run this way,

National and state government gurus,

With $ in mind, plus perks, had their say.

Guess who loses? The child --

Their 9 parts of the brain ignored --

Time, ignorance and no one really listening

Has given them the grade card -- they're bored!

Technology, smart boards -- let's try that --

Ka-ching -- put in the money -- they'll survive!

The broken system will all be fixed --

By the way -- what's on your hard drive?
