Quotation Of The Day: NCLB Edition

Yesterday's Sioux Falls Argus Leader contained an editorial about NCLB and South Daktoa's efforts to obtain a waiver.  I'm less sanguine about SDDOE's efforts than the Argus Leader's editorial writers.  In fact, I'm pretty sure that the state will preserve or exacerbate NCLB's flaws.

That being said, this analysis is spot on.
For today’s high school freshmen, who started kindergarten the year NCLB became law, it provided a decade of underachieving standards and misplaced efforts. NCLB left behind a well-rounded education, and national test data show that students made greater strides in reading and math before the law was enacted.
