82% of US Schools ‘failing’

An estimated 82% of U.S. schools labeled as “failing” under the nation’s No Child Left Behind Act, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Wednesday.

The Department of Education estimates the number of schools not meeting targets will skyrocket from 37 to 82 percent in 2011.

Rather than address the problems, the Obama admin is trying to destroy the No Child law instead.  Classic reaction from liberals on education, if students are failing, get rid of the “F” grade – ignore the cause, go after the measuring tool.

Is it finally time to dump the notion of compulsory public schools run by taxpayers, and monopolized by Teachers Unions?
