I was thinking about NCLB yesterday and a thought came to me. I could probably support it if the federal government made the program revenue nuetral to the pubic schools. That is, instead of removing the funds from the public schools, the govt. merely supports the private/parochial institutions that accept the new children. That way their precious faith based initiatives still get supported, but we don't further gut the already poorly funded public school system.
I know this removes the "incentive" for schools to perform better, but IMO that's bogus anyway.
