Interesting Article...Extra Credit!

Hey Baby Birds...Today marked a historic day in education as President Barack Obama waived some requirements for ten states on the infamous "No Child Left Behind Act of 2001".  I remember being in college when the law was passed, and discussing what impact this law would have on our nation... This is the first time since 2001 that the law has been modified to this extent.  For an extra credit HW grade (your lowest grade will be replaced with a 100) read the following article (or an article about the President's repeal of NCLB) and write up a current event.  In your explanation of the article, STATE YOUR OPINION on whether you think the federal government should get this involved with public education.  This is due on Wednesday, Feb. 15 (all classes).  Be Good!
