NCLB 2.0 Worse Than 1.0

Congratulations again America! We have elected a FOO (Friend Of the Oligarchs) president who has placed another FOO in charge of education. Jim Horn lays out the ramifications of their new plans to reform our schools:
Because the annual testing will continue unabated under the Oligarchs' plan that Obama will present, this new system will pit the poor against the poorer and the poorer against the poorest, because the only thing that will keep your school off the shutdown, er, turnaround list is some other school in your vicinity that is doing worse still. No targets, no impossible goals. AYP be gone, they don't need you anymore. Under NCLB 2.0, there will be a never-ending list of the "bottom five percent" of schools every year, and there is nothing any school can do except to hope there is some schmucky school further down the road that is even poorer.
