Clinton's Biggest Policy Flip Flops

NCLB's Biggest Champion on the Trail is Dropping Out

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a Republican who had assembled a who's who list of education advisers and one of the more detailed education agendas of the GOP presidential candidates, is calling it quits. Now who in the presidential race will say nice things about No Child Left Behind?

John McCain on NCLB? It's Anyone's Guess

Unless Mitt Romney can pull off a N.Y. Giants-esque upset on Super Tuesday, Republican John McCain seems destined to claim the Republican presidential nomination. And so I went searching again for more insight into how Sen. McCain might change the No Child Left Behind Act. On his Web site, you can ...

Clinton's Retribution? Blame Kennedy for NCLB

That's Bill Clinton, not Hillary. In this story, the former president is blaming Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy, one of the architects of the No Child Left Behind Act, for the "train wreck" that he says the law has become. Hmmmm. Could this be President Clinton's payback for Sen.

The results from yesterday's Iowa caucuses make one thing very clear: these Midwestern voters are demanding change.

Voter Attitudes on School Prayer, Vouchers, and NCLB

If I were writing this as a traditional news story, this would be my lead: "Forty-two percent of voters surveyed in a recent Associated Press-Yahoo poll said they would be much more likely, or somewhat more likely, to vote for a candidate who supports teacher-led prayer in public schools."

John Edwards on NCLB: We May Have to Ditch It

Even the presidential candidate with one of the most comprehensive plans to re-tool the No Child Left Behind Act is now saying those fixes might not be enough.
