Children and Multiple Intelligences: A Short Aside

After posting Part 1, I realized that schools and school systems who have good test scores might be hesitant to implement any new teaching methodology or techniques.  Why?  After all, doesn't the present of good test scores mean that the schools use cutting edge ideas?

No, on the contrary, schools with good test scores only use the tried and true methods, because no one wants to be responsible for lowering the test scores.  Instead, it is the Title 1 schools and the schools with low test scores that feel free to try new teaching techniques, since they can theoretically only get better.

And people wonder why I never liked "No Child Left Behind".
