Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

No Child, left behind?



Nclblogo Democrats in Congress are talking about changing the federal education law's name, because it's too closely tied to unpopular President Bush, the Washington Post reports. That's particularly evident with all the alternate versions that detractors cast about so easily - No Child Left Untested, No Public School Left Standing, No Child's Behind Left. You get the picture.

Already, folks have been offering new ideas. University of Miami president Donna Shalala has recommended Children First! (complete with exclamation point). Others soon will follow as lawmakers consider other more substantive alterations to the act, as well.

Any suggestions?
