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). 

For more on NCLB and the enforcement of NCLB on States: see, Evan Stephenson, Evading the No Child Left Behind Act: State Strategies and Federal Complicity, 2006 BYU Educ. & L. J. 157 (2006) and Amy M. Reichbach, The Power Behind the Promise: Enforcing no Child Left Behind to Improve Education, 45 B.C. L. Rev 667 (2004).
