United States Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has not surprisingly said that he’s open to renaming the “No Child Left Behind Act” something else. Before President Bush, for instance, the Clinton version of the law was called the “Improving America’s Schools Act.” The underlying law is the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, it’s not going anywhere but a new name is likely in the offing.
Howie Schaffer suggested that the time is now to start naming names. So let’s have a contest. The person who offers the best name, decided via a highly arbitrary process involving me and a few friends, wins a signed copy of this picture of DCPS official Justin Cohen in a really tacky frame. Runners-up get books.
