An attempt by a member of Virginia's House of Delegates to remove Virginia from the federal No Child Left Behind Act -- and forfeit about $280 million -- failed today
. The vote was 11-6 in the legislative committee. That's not exactly a ringing endorsement for the embattled Act. If the choice is $280 mil and NCLB vs. no money and no NCLB and six go for the latter, is there any way to interpret that as anything but a potential sign of trouble?
Does anybody know of other State Houses considering similar measures to boycott NCLB?
