Our county says 95% by 2005. We're doing great at our school, which has an ESL program, by the way. We are at 96.3% as of last year. It is ridicuous, though, to expect 100% to be at grade level, if not impossible.

concept, however, to expect the testing to be at 100% is ridiculous. It is
going to take more than a unreachable mandate to teach our children what
they need to learn.

No Child Left Behind = No teacher left standing and very few students will
show progress.
