Education Secretary calls NCLB "99.9% pure"

It seems Education Secretary Margaret Spellings is in love with her own pet legislation, the No Child Left Behind act, claiming "There's not much needed in the way of change" as the time for the first major chance for revisions approaches.

Meanwhile, the NCLB is universally decried by educators themselves as well as most of the public. But Spellings doesn't seem to be in touch with that reality, or that the SATs have just showed their biggest drop in scores in 31 years.

A bunch of NCLB gold star members there...
