How Many Children Left Behind?

President Bush came to Chicago to boast about the wonder that is No Child Left Behind. Ironic seeing as NCLB has not been kind or helpful to the Chicago Public School System. This ridiculous policy has left countless children, teachers, and schools behind. A Chicago Sun-Times article features three students who've been negatively effected by this law.

NCLB states that by 2014 every child, regardless of race, income, or disability, should perform (i.e. test) at grade level. Which begs the question....what grade level would our Commander in Chief test at?
