Secretary of Education Will Override Main Point of School Accountability Law

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says the No Child Left Behind Law that President George W. Bush signed into law in 2002 is hurting schools, and he will not hold our nation’s 100,000 schools accountable for being 100% proficient in Math and Reading by 2014.  Some feel he must back away from enforcing the law, since so many schools are falling short anyways that the law has lost credibility. (39,000 of the nation’s schools are reportedly failing, and that number is supposed to rise to 80,000 by the deadline of 2014) What do you think about this? Is this the right move?
