Moonie Times likes NCLB!

Here's what the opposition says about NCLB and you have to go to the Moonie Times to find it. They like NCLB!
Schools act gets high marks at summit

About 200 educators at a national summit in Washington shared positive learning gains under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, in stark contrast to continuing complaints against the law by teachers unions.
The law's $3 billion in Reading First grants in the past three years has enabled schools to hire reading coaches to help elementary teachers boost language proficiency, said Sandy Granchelli, a coach from Coventry, Conn.
It should be noted they are reporting about a summit sponsored by the Department of Education. Can you bet you're not going to see much complaining there? Hell, what if it gets back and they get disinvited for the next year? Can't risk that.

Some other headlines I found on the same page of this article: 'Jobs, income growth enable customers', 'Terrorists testing jets, crews say', and 'Petition worker suspects threat'.
