No Child Left Behind - Republican Rebellion against Bush's testing/accountability regime
A March 15, 2007 Washington Post article reports that 50+ Republican members of Congress are introducing legislation to allow states to opt out of the testing required by the No Child Left Behind Act.
For a president who wrote: "Bipartisan education reform will
be the cornerstone of my Administration," this is undoubtably a threat both to Bush's goals regarding education and to his domestic legacy. (Emphasis added, see http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/reports/no-child-left-behind.html).
