I realize that No Child Left Behind was not wildly popular. I will go on record though with saying that I supported it, with the thought that there could have been changes to it.
With that said, and ignoring the merits or faults of NCLB, think of the implications of this ruling.
Is this the solution to getting rid of NCLB? Does it shortchange kids in public schools? Is this simply a nod to teacher's unions whose members are under fire for poor performance? Is it just a further attempt to dumb down the US education system.
Finally, is this a decision that should solely left to a presidential administration? Should this decision be made by unelected bureaucrats or Congress?
What are your thoughts?
