Finally, a presidential candidate makes a statement on NCLB that is not channeling Margaret Spellings. From the DNC Winter Meeting earlier today :
Adding a few dollars and tweaking a reauthorized No Child Left Behind is not real change: ending No Child Child Left Behind as we know is real change, and replacing it with a real true commitment to the children of this country. In this competitive world we live in, we cannot afford to be a nation of great standardized test takers--we must be a nation of creative and innovative thinkers—and that is what our education should be.
