    Hopefully this will curb the teacher need to cheat in order to achieve some numerical goal. Bad legislation from the start.

    Too much about him and executive authority. It is an indictment of the political system that this is necessary. But I have yet to see him bring a proposal forward that would fix the problems.

    What I see here is waivers for favors. NCLB was all about accountability. I dont see anything in here where he makes accountability part of the reason for waivers.

    I partially agree with you as well. The waivers need to be done legislatively. The Congress really needs to crack down on the president's power to issue executive orders because it is happening way too much and as time goes on the various presidents are consolidating more and more power into the executive branch by way of these orders.

    No big surprise here, he is letting his corporate buddies opt our of Obama care if they contribute to his campaign fund. That is who he is. No child left behind is a jobe until parents get back involved with their schools and quite blaming them for their childs abysmal behavior at school.
