Three States Fighting NCLB

It's not been a good month for No Child Left Behind. Last week there were reports of reduced progress by students since the requirements took effect. Now three states, Connecticut, Utah, and Texas, are refusing to follow federal regulations.

Connecticut is suing the US Department of education fo rmandating changes without providing the funding. The Texas education commissioner decided the requirements are flawed and decided to disregard some of the requirements. The Utah State Senate appears to be on the verge of passing a bill, already passed by the House, which rules that Utah's regulations will be followed where they conflict with the US Government's.
