Yes, that's right. Test scores have increased since NCLB passed in 2002. Reading scores also are up slightly, and girls achieved parity with boys in mathematics. This is a monumental victory.
I guess holding someone accountable for what they do, DOES make them work harder.
Be wary of education lobbyists who downplay our long track record of scientific success while simultaneously asking for more money. At $91,700 per pupil from kindergarten through twelfth grade, the U.S. is outspent only by Switzerland in the education arena. Cash is not a problem. If we are to fix the science education "problem" — to the extent that there even is a problem — the current data support adding science to NCLB. Instead, the Obama administration is issuing waivers. Our point is not to defend NCLB or any particular policy. But, right now, this much is clear: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I should point how that my teachers were the people who taught me that NCLB was terrible. I wonder why.

Any president would do this, regardless of party, for the same reasons Obama is: People want it, it's entirely reasonable, it's politically inoffensive, and both parties support it.
Sounds like a disaster in the making.
