    MAYBE THEY COULD The other day I wondered aloud (so to speak) if Bush could be so cynical as to craft the NCLB Act in a way that enabled conservatives to essentially wipe the slate clean. Well, MB at WampumBlog certainly thinks so.

    In part, [NCLB is] really a guise to union-bust, I think. If a school continues to fail (and under these scenarios most schools will), administrators and teachers are all fired and replaced (probably with younger, less experienced and hence cheaper ones.) If the school still fails, its turned into a charter school (essentially private and not governed by union protections) or taken completely “privatized”.
