Time to Leave “No Child” Behind

After seven years of rule by decree by President Obama’s Chicago crony Arne Duncan, why did Republicans reauthorize the federal government’s authority over the nation’s public schools? And why did the new Speaker, Paul Ryan, rush a 1,059-page bill to a floor vote only two days after the text was released on November 30? Fourteen years ago, President George W.
