Since you keep repeating it, I'll keep asking till you address it.
So why do you continue to lay all blame for problems in our Education system on Bush, when (as shown) the Law was passed with 89-91% overwhelming bipartisan support, and was personally sponsored and supported by such men as Ted Kennedy?
You like to claim anyone who dares question the Public Education System is a Corporate Shill who hates Unions and likes hurting kids (kids, it seems, you yourself have little love for given your ranting about how horrible they and their parents are...). But it's hard to take any such ranting seriously when it's clear got a political motive behind it.
Perhaps, I might toss this out there, if teh Teachers Union was not so strictly a Democrat Funding Agent and recipient of pay-for-protection Democrat support, then Teachers would not find as much criticism from the political arena. Then again, that funding-and-quid-pro-quo is big part of what keeps a bad system in place, far more than any widely bipartisan NCLB legislation.
