There has been a growing trend to treat all kids "equally". It
started with intergration and slowly progressed to the point
that no child can be taught at a different level than others
and finally "no child can be left behind".
Well, just because mine will manage 10,000 acres of cattle and
had absolutely no need for some classes does not mean that he
is being "left behind" but, this is the stupid goal of NCLB.
