No Child Left Behind

I've finally got around to signing up for my Tulane classes. As of this writing, I've signed up for exactly one, called "No Child Left Behind". The class aims to take advantage of New Orleans as a city that has consistently some of the worst public schools in the nation, and see how NCLB is affecting that. It also means doing volunteer grunt work in the schools, which will hopefully be as worthwhile as it is frustrating.

While I had to turn down a Graphic Novel class to take this one, I will still probably benefit in being able to look at APS with comparison to something worse. (Too much Burque Babble hurts the optimism)
