NCLB UPDATE....Has the No Child Left Behind legislation had an impact on student test scores? The latest NAEP results are out and it sure doesn't look like it:

"Let's put it this way," said Tom Loveless, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, "reading scores were flat and math scores on the rise before No Child Left Behind, and reading scores are flat and math scores are still up after No Child Left Behind. It's impossible to know whether NCLB had an impact either positively or negatively."

Fourth grade reading scores are here and math scores are here. The full report is here.
