blah blah blah blah, poor kids need more money to raise achievement for failing schools, blah blah blah blah blah need accountability blah blah blah blah blah, we are working on funding blah blah blah blah blah, I talked with other politicians who agree blah blah blah blah blah

It is sad that he wastes tax payer money to visit a school and speak to kids who have no say in what is about to happen to them.

I think his time would be better spent talking with teachers who are responsible for fulfilling the standards set forth in NCLB. Education professionals would provide comments and give better direction then politicians who spend more time arguing about non-binding agreements.

NCLB is noble, is a goal to achieve, but without funding or accepting the fact that some kids will be left behind; the lofty goals will mean many children will be penalized for a few. Also Students and Parents should be accountable.

If you want No Child Left Behind Mr. President, then take all the money spent on war and give it to education. IED would then mean Incredible Educational Development.

PS. I voted for him
