The rumblings of discontent over No Child Left Behind continue to grow.
Earlier this week, the House of Representatives in my home state of Arizona voted to tell the federal government to keep it’s $600 million, and all the crappy regulations that go with it.
Last month, the legislature here in Virginia was seriously considering a similar bill, although they wound up passing along the responsibility to the state Board of Education.
Not everyone likes the idea of turning back that kind of money, especially in a particularly rough budget year.
But the fact that a growing number of states are standing up to the educational stupidity of NCLB is a hopeful sign.
