A new study by Marguerite Roza, a professor at the University of Washington's Evans School of Public affairs, uncovers and documents how NCLB is leaving the poorest and most vulnerable children behind and ACTUALLY DIVERTING funds to the wealthiest school districts. An article published on News-Medical.Net , stated that Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings was asked at the beginning of the year by a House Appropriations subcommittee to study how Title 1 and district funds are intermingled. Hmmm.... where would that study be? If anyone has seen it, please forward to SM. Perhaps Maggie's been too busy measuring every poor kid every year and making sure that children of gay and lesbian couples continue to feel like outcasts to bother with a few silly loopholes. Seems like it might be time to close the achievement gap at DOE.
