This was a dumb law from day one. It was supported totally by Ted Kennedy and it is simply more proof that left wing ideas come to grief.

Call NCLB for what it has been; a Republican power grab to break up unions, boost non-union magnet and private schools while disenfranchising an entire generation of students.

Maybe David Gregory can bring up this subject in today's Republican primary debate. Come to think of it, have any of the debate moderators brought up the name George W. Bush?

Going out on a limb here and saying Bush was (not)educated at private schools? Maybe at a public school he would have turned out to be a real person? Anyone? Anyone?

Education costs money and the upper crust 1% owners of the politicians do not want you educated. They want to keep you out of the "know" to keep your wages down, to keep you from using your head, and anything else you might achieve through higher learning.
Not to mention they just wanted to bust up teacher unions and bring in illegal aliens to teach your kids. When they're done teaching, they can drive the buses and clean the schools. That's the CON-servative education approach for public education.

Well, you certainly have the radical liberal narrative down, just like the msm tells you too. You have the ridicule and smart arss answers down to a science. don't forget the conservatives also want dirty air and old people to suffer. Such a good liberal you are!

Education begins with PARENTS, when there are non performing parents it's nearly impossible for them to learn. The government brains know this but they choose to ignore the facts in favor of their salaries.

The first thing that needs to happen is a mandate that retention policies are based of performance and not tenure. But Unions don't like that idea.

Performance assessment is inherently political. This is union busting pure and simple.

Yup wanting the best possible performance is union busting. Could not have said it better myself. Unions....Encouraging mediocrity since 1870

tenure is based on performance in and out of the class room. an obvoiusly poor teacher, who fails to meet continuing education requirments does not get tenure. just like you walmart greeters during your 90 day probationary period.

There hasnt been a president in history that hasnt USED education as a talking point..not one..Read some of their inaguration speeches! They sound like parrots.

So true. Also solar energy got the same treatment. Looks like all out govt can keep going is making bombs.

The Federal government in the matter of education is incompetant and MUST get out of the way of real progress in the matter of education. Along with several other non-performing and CORRUPT agencies. As far as Bush went, 2 certain talk show guys constantly BRAGGED "home ownership" under their Idol is the highest in history.

How about we stop wasting taxpayer mone on these b*llsh*t charter and religous schools and give the money back to the states and local communities who know the spefic needs of the children in their area. Then maybe you'd see some real gains and strides in black and latino communities. That's how you level the playing field for minority students. Stop busing them outside their communities to go to white schools that get 5000 a head but don't know anyting about them or their specific learning needs!

Totally, with one exception, for kids that do need special care. There are a lot of them and some charter schools are awesome. This is an issue that will keep being important and complex. The problem comes when people like Bush get involved, which is tough to avoid on the national level. I worry!

Wait...isn't this the ultimate example of "wasteful governmental spending?" You know, the very thing that the GOP despises, and is campaigning against?

Oh, that's right...it's only "wasteful" if it is spending for food, housing, and healthcare.
My mistake.
