Sartwell: ‘No Child Left Behind’ an Empty Promise

from the creeping-cynicism dept.

Not having read Crispin Sartwell before, I was pleasantly surprised by his refreshingly pissed-off rant in the L.A. Times op-ed section today. The piece offers a criticism of the vacuous banality of the handy catchphrase “No child left behind,” uttered by every empty-headed politician from Elizabeth Dole to dubya to Al Gore. Good stuff (and, thanks to Sartwell’s personal web site, linkable without having to suffer the tortures of the L.A. Times’ Web-hostile required login).
