Improving NCLB

I've said for quite some time that the No Child Left Behind Act has some provisions that could be improved. Here's one of them, although IMNSHO not the biggest or most important improvement that could be suggested:

WASHINGTON — The Bush administration is trying to address one of the most common complaints about the No Child Left Behind education law: It treats schools the same, regardless of whether they fail to meet annual benchmarks by a little or a lot.

Education Secretary Margaret Spellings plans to announce Tuesday that she wants states to submit proposals for assigning different consequences to schools based on the degree to which they miss annual progress goals.
