WSJ has run another No Child Left Behind (NCLB) article. In this one, gifted students scores manipulation is the theme. Apparently, poorer performing (poor) schools are finagling the numbers to make sure "gifted" (only 80% passed) student scores were being included for schools they did not attend.

Seems the educrats care as much about self-preservation as the children, but at least, they understand how averages work.

Since NCLB is a policy bogeyman for the Dems, I wonder why they don't just repeal it? Could it be the additional $25BB is gives the school systems?
