PBS 10 Minute Primer on NCLB

This from Peter Campbell:

This great piece from the PBS NewsHour with Jim Lehrer is about 10 minutes long. It does an excellent job (one of the best I've seen or read) of concisely describing AYP, federal sanctions, and the paradox of how a good school can be labeled a failure. If you can't watch it, there's also a transcript you can read.
