I am trying to gain some ideas. Our district has been targeted as a district in need of improvement. I teach in a Title I school so from what I understand, NCLB has different meaning for us. We didn't make the grade with our African Americans in the area of math. Are you or know of someone who is teaching in a district in need of improvement? Do you know of anyone who lost their job because of NCLB and the school didn't make the necessary improvements? What is your administration doing to help the teachers to make changes? What changes or ideas do you have or have done so that your students do well on those tests? What has been your experience? Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated! We are going to have a meeting to brainstorm ideas and hopefully get the support we need from the district administration. Thanks again!
