Educational / Political Cartoons

Here is a cartoon poking a little fun at Margaret Spellings, Bush's new appointed head of the Department of Education. She replaced Rod Paige.

Background behind the cartoon:

Most community members may not be aware of all the aspects of the No Child Left Behind law.

While it is a worthwhile and noble goal to make sure that all children reach "grade-level proficiency," one of the most irrational parts of this law requires that 100% of all students in all schools in America reach "proficiency" by 2013-2014 or the school will be labeled "failing."

Failing schools will have punishments or sanctions outlined in the law.

This cartoon is a funny jab at the punishment aspects of the law as well as Bush's choice of Margaret Spellings as the new director.
