It's ridiculous that the kids have to watch movies for 2 days this week instead of having the whole week off.

No, it's ridiculous that your children's teachers are showing movies for two days, wasting this valuable instruction time. It is no wonder that students in the United States globally rank #22 in science,#27 in math, and #33 in reading. Our students lag behind their counterparts in the Czech Republic, Korea, Iceland, and France. Sad.

Thank NCLB for those fine scores. Kids aren't taught much these days, so even if they do watch movies they aren't missing out on much "instruction".

George W. Bush made a mistake signing off on that act. Education could use some major reforms. Gearing curriculum toward testing rather than learning doesn't appear to be working.

No, it's not working at all. When 99% of the kids in the school are on the honor roll, something is seriously wrong.
