ABSTRACT
This spring, when some Georgia third-graders are scheduled to become the state's first students to be retained under the federal No Child Left Behind law, people will no doubt hear lofty rhetoric from educators, politicians and advocates about "accountability," as of April 2004. The author says that she had worked in high-pressure positions in broadcasting and on Wall Street and had never faced "accountability" as she did when she taught a roomful of second-graders in an Atlanta public school. Ironically, the author had worked in one of the stronger urban schools, one that does not appear on the Needs Improvement list. The school is in the vicinity of a historic African-American district, a neighborhood that excites and inspires the author.
