Democrats Push for Changes to No Child Left Behind Law

You now can leave a total of two children behind.

Democratic Congressional leaders on Monday called President Bush’s signature education law too punitive in its sanctions on public schools and pledged to increase educational spending, signaling the stance they will take this year in negotiations over the law’s renewal.

Yeah, just like they pledged a five-day work week for Congress.

The measure prods schools to improve students’ yearly achievement with the threat of sanctions and requires them to bring all students to grade level in reading and math by 2014.

Reading okay but math? That has numbers and stuff.
