Paulo Friere High School / Boston School Rachel Roberts Loryn Dion Amy Morimoto Overview The no child left behind act has created a cookie-cutter form of education; one that is so powerful and strict that it renders itself utterly instrumental. Teachers are rewarded for textbook lesson plans; plans that set students up for failure. Students are taught to pass tests rather than acquire knowledge that they can use throughout their life. Based on results of the 2010 MCAS tests released in 2010, 46% of the Boston area's 71 regular and charter school districts did not meet federal standards for yearly progress. Liberating teaching, linking education to social justice, and creating a level playing field for all students within all levels of education is the only path to salvaging democracy. This calls for a revolutionary change within the structure of education, one that allows students to focus on their strengths and build on their weakness. This would start by changing the fundamental structure of education in the classroom. Background
