Bush Education Plan "Gains" Pure Fraud

I told you first nearly a year ago about how the "No Child Left Behind" act that required states to show generally rising school results as well as a narrowing of the gap between racial groups.

Now it is again confirmed that schools are likely faking improvements in order to obtain Federal funding. This article notes that while grades are improving, standardized national test scores are not improving, nor are the racial disparities narrowing. This indicates that teachers have been instructed to lower standards in order to be able to show "better grades".
