Duncan: NCLB could soon label 82% of schools as failing

Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Wednesday that 82% of the country's schools could be called "failing" if the No Child Left Behind law is not changed. The administration is seeking to relax some accountability measures in the law. "The law has created dozens of ways for schools to fail and very few ways to help them succeed," Duncan said. "We should get out of the business of labeling schools as failures and create a new law that is fair and flexible and focused on the schools and students most at risk." The Washington Post
