Where No Child Left Behind Went Wrong - Adam Richardson by Adam Richardson | 8:27 AM October 17, 2011 Recently President Obama started talking about the first substantive changes to the No Child Left Behind Act in its 10-year history. He argued that while the goal of closing the achievement gap between students of different ethnicities and income levels is a laudatory one, the levers and incentives that the program has in place are not working. I couldn’t agree more, but I still have a fundamental disagreement with the narrow focus of No Child Left Behind. It has a retrograde emphasis on teaching children “the basics” (followed by annual testing on the same) using subjects and methods more relevant to the past mass-production era, rather than the creative, global, innovation- and information-driven economy that we are in.
O-ring Typical O-ring and application The O-ring may be used in static applications or in dynamic applications where there is relative motion between the parts and the O-ring. Dynamic examples include rotating pump shafts and hydraulic cylinder pistons. Manufacturing O-rings can be produced by extrusion, injection molding, pressure molding or transfer molding. 10 free collaboration tools for journalists Two heads are often better than one when it comes to working creatively.

How To Figure Out Multiples Of Nine 2. Why I became a teacher: to pass on my love of literature Like lots of people, I never thought I'd be a teacher when I was at school. To be honest, I only did my training because my husband was on a four-year course and I was on a three-year course at Cardiff University, so I wanted to do something for one year. I thought doing a teaching qualification would be interesting and might be quite useful. My first teaching practice, as part of the course, was in a primary school for three weeks. Although it was fun, the kids were running wild. I didn't feel I could control them and I thought: "this is hopeless - I just can't do this".
Fluid bearing They can be broadly classified into two types: fluid dynamic bearings and hydrostatic bearings. Hydrostatic bearings are externally pressurized fluid bearings, where the fluid is usually oil, water or air, and the pressurization is done by a pump. Hydrodynamic bearings rely on the high speed of the journal (the part of the shaft resting on the fluid) to pressurize the fluid in a wedge between the faces. Fluid bearings are frequently used in high load, high speed or high precision applications where ordinary ball bearings would have short life or cause high noise and vibration.
