  1. Remember “No Child Left Behind” was based on a lie. Rod Paige, the former Sec. of Education under W. Bush from 2001-2005, was superintendent of the Houston Independent School District (HISD). Largely based on the success of the HISD, labeled the “Texas Miracle”, “No Child Left Behind” was drafted and voted into law.

    Except the “Texas Miracle” was not true. Over 3,000 High School dropouts were labeled as “transfer students” instead of dropouts, dramatically lowering the dropout rate. Instead of changing answers like the Atlanta teachers, Houston’s principals made sure the lowest performing students did not take the standardized tests. I guess it is not surprising that legislation based on fraud is still creating fraud in our educational system.
