Today's Roanoke Times actually suggests "dumping the unfunded mandate" if adequate funds aren't supplied by the feds in order for states to fulfill the dictates of the No Child Left Behind Act.
Virginia educators and lawmakers have been justifiably frustrated with the Bush administration's one-size-fits-all No Child Left Behind initiative that superimposes the White House's own onerous - and underfunded - accountability mandate on schools.This may well be the most strident anti-NCLB editorial I've ever seen. Good for the Roanoke Times.
It sure does look like Connecticut's lawsuit is getting people's attention.
