Obama Proposes Dismantling No Child Left Behind March 15, 2010 The Obama administration wants to completely change the No Child Left Behind Act. Officials are sending Congress a plan Monday that they say will give states and local school districts more flexibility to revitalize primary and secondary schools. A draft released over the weekend would eliminate many of the law's most controversial features, including its name. Copyright © 2010 National Public Radio®. For personal, noncommercial use only.

A draft blueprint, released over the weekend, would eliminate many of the education law's most controversial features, including its name. NPR's Larry Abramson reports that some of No Child Left Behind's biggest critics, teacher's unions, are surprisingly hostile to the new plan.
