Bush and No Child Left Behind: Failure

Test scores slow under No Child Left Behind reforms, gauged by states/federal assessment

Bush's greatest legacy could be his No Child Left Behind gimmickry. And it just might be, if you consider this his most successful failure. I mean, there isn't much from which to choose:
  1. Iraq
  2. Medicare overhaul
  3. Social Security overhaul
  4. Border safety
  5. Amnesty
  6. Katrina
  7. 9/11
  8. War on terra
  9. War on terror
  10. Clear Skies
  11. Energy Task Force
  12. Tort reform
  13. Compassionate conservatism
How far can one go? I'd say you've left a helluva legacy, Little Bush.
