(RALEIGH) — North Carolina has been selected to be a model for a No Child Left Behind pilot program.

Congressman Robin Hayes made the announcement Tuesday.

The program will create a new standard for measuring a child’s growth and achievement. The program is designed to make sure all kids perform at grade level by the year 2014.

It will also allow a teacher’s hard work to be showcased more accurately in state reporting.

North Carolina and Tennessee were the only two states selected to take part in the program.

UPDATE: The details.

How sad for the children who would be above grade level.

How about those poor kids who are completely through the system within the next eight years? Will they end up being Children Left Behind because they were too dumb to wait and be born a little later?
