Committee recommends better coordinating early education programs

Vermont's early childhood education programs need better coordination but should still be funded by tax dollars, a special committee recommended Thursday. The panel's recommendations, which are expected to be drafted into legislative proposals, may not quell criticisms that those who work in public education are trying to take over private day care and other early education programs.

NCLB Under Fire

BY Beth Parent

Former and current teachers joined members of the progressive party Thursday afternoon to express their dismay over the federal No Child Left Behind law -- requiring schools to test students each year to make sure adequate progress is being made. "A terrible waste of instructional and student time," said Larry Carbonetti, a former teacher in Southern Vermont. Teachers claim they spend more time teaching students how to take the standardized test -- instead of teaching the curriculum.
