NLCB shrinking achievement gap

From the CEC Smart Brief:

At a Washington, D.C., charter school Thursday, President George W. Bush deemed NCLB a success but urged lawmakers to amend the law in several areas, including expanding testing beyond 10th grade and giving bonuses to teachers who raise their students' scores or work in hard-to-fill schools. In response, the Democratic National Committee termed the law a failure, because its underfunding has forced states to sue the federal government to pay for programs. The Washington Post (10/5)
