Campaign for the education of the whole child

Schools must ensure every child has access to a rich array of subjects, including social studies, world languages, science, art, music, physical education, and recess, as well as reading and math... [T]he state must provide adequate resources to ensure that every child has access to the fundamentals that have consistently been shown to improve educational outcomes: small class size; quality early childhood education and early intervention programs; suitable facilities; teacher mentoring and development programs; up-to-date libraries; and desegregated schools.
Doesn’t sound very controversial, does it?

But it flies in the face of MCAS, No Child Left Behind, and other government-imposed high-stakes testing. Check out the source of the quotation: the Campaign for the education of the whole child.
