    UNFUNDATED* The New Hampshire School Administrators Association has done a cost/benefit analysis of the NCLB. The “benefits” considered are exclusively the additional federal dollars brought into the state. They estimate a ratio of approximately $8 spent to bring in $1. My favorite “estimate” is the additional cost of attracting “high quality” teachers: $11,716,728.93. Surprisingly, they estimate it will cost even more to attract “high quality paraprofessionals”: $16,558,344. And no sense, er, cents.

    *I got tired of writing “unfunded mandate.”
