No Child Left Behind: The Translation

NCLB SAYS: This law is historic. The bipartisan spirit of change is unprecedented. It is a new era in education.

Democrats and Republicans united under the President's leadership to declare that success in schools will be measured by --whether every child is learning.

TRANSLATION: The Democrats didn't bother to read the bill.

NCLB SAYS: Spending more money does not guarantee success. We must use our resources more wisely.

TRANSLATION: The Federal contribution to local school expenses is aout 7% of the total. So why do the locals let the Federal bullys make 93% of the noise?
