Loosen Washington's grip on schools

We have opposed the No Child Left Behind Act since it became law a decade ago. In the guise of improving K-12 school standards, it greatly expanded federal control over schools, usurping state and local authority. California, in particular, already had rigorous standards, which it effectively was enforcing.

Editorial says as revamp of No Child Left Behind moves forward, Washington should let go and put more power back in state and local hands, making sure along way no roadblocks get in way of charter school efforts. Agreed! The less red tape, the better.
