Tell Me This Isn't How NCLB Plays Out

  • now - 2008: no change.
  • 2008: Democrats take the presidency and increase their majorities in the House and Senate.
  • 2009: Democrats pass NCLB reform which increases funding but also vastly increases complexity and cost. Republicans vote against it for "watering down" parts of the law that were completely impossible and/or nonsensical from the beginning.
  • 2010: Republicans hang the increasingly unpopular NCLB around the Democrats neck and run against it and teachers unions and in favor of Federalism and re-establishing local control (and charter schools & vouchers).
