    Good. No Child Left Behind is an unrealistic farce that teaches kids how to take tests instead of being intelligent.

    The law should die a fiery death.

    from what I hear, kids were spending more time practising for tests & taking tests....than actually learning anything.

    NCLB is one of the greatest failures of the Bush Administration and of Congress.

    My children aren't. However, right now, education is entirely too focused on tests instead of letting teachers do their job and customize the education to the children.

    Where's that “Bucket of FAIL” graphic that I've seen others using on this forum? It seems to be desperately needed here.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    To be fair GWB based NCLB on education reform he passed in Texas. It may have been good for Texas, actually - I don't know. But it's definitely wasn't good for the nation as a whole.

    NCLB is another example of that - legislation that may be good for a single state but disastrous for the nation as a whole.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    The federal government has no proper business interfering in high school education

    States could have always opt-out of NCLB...but they would lose tens of millions in education aid.
