I agree with tnmom. NCLB has left many behind. Overall, I think while intentions were good~this is the perfect example of BIG federal government intervening where state and local governments primarily belong. Bush, Kennedy, et al missed the mark on this one... jmo

I don't know if we have a chance, Obama is now backing NCLB.
Obama on No Child Left Behind by Anna Weinstein
It looks like No Child Left Behind, one of the most hotly debated education issues of the decade, is here to stay—though not without some major changes. While most would agree that the intent of NCLB was both positive and important, many educators, researchers, and policymakers believe there are major flaws with this legislation.
