Repealed by Executive Order: 27 States Request Waivers to Opt Out of No Child Left Behind

Now this is interesting news:

"States are lining up to drop out of No Child Left Behind, the education initiative that was promoted as a historic achievement of the Bush administration.

Since President Barack Obama announced last month that he would sign an executive order allowing states to request waivers from mandatory participation in the program, at least 27 have signaled that they will ask to opt out, and most others are reviewing their options."

Too bad Congress won't just repeal it.
