Yeah, that no child left behind act is just great.
Here in Iowa our schools faced huge budget cuts. We can't afford anymore teachers and kids are taking class in locker rooms, boiler rooms, and teacher's lounges. On average in our area of the state each school is over crowded by no less than 200 students and under staffed severely. Many schools have dropped physical education, after school activities and they are now eliminating shop classes. To save money the middle school and high school now let kids leave for lunch, since it costs money to staff the kitchen. They were able to cut kitchen staffs in half but now some kids only have a Marlboro for lunch, some leave and don't go back. As far as I can tell if Bush gets 4 more years our kids will be attending school for core classes only and being sent home since the schools won't be able to pay to keep the power on.
If this was suppose to be better for our kids he was DEAD wrong and I pray for the future generations that he doesn't get 4 more years to cause further domestic destruction.
Now I know this is going to get the Bush Cult all fired up but I state facts as I see them, that's all. Infact I believe John Kerry voted for the No child left behind act. However, he thought it would be funded, when in reality the funding was nearly entirely cut. He full intends to recend the act while Bush, even with the clear proof it doesn't work plans to deapen it's wound it has inflicted on our schools. Next thing you know Bush will get rid of financial assistance programs for college, OH wait he already did that .
A mess don't describe it.
