The First Ever "This Week In Education" Reader Contest: Name the "Next" NCLB

Even before anyone has a chance to try out the new "growth" model pilot, a handful of organizations have already put together their recommendations for the next NCLB. How fun.

Not that I've read them or anything, but here they are, courtesy of NCLB Insights:

National Association of Secondary School Principals PDF
National School Boards Association PDF
National Conference of State Legislators

At this point, however, I think the most important thing we should be figuring out is what to call the next version of the law. I mean, "No Child Left Behind" was certainly better than the Clinton-era "Improving America's Schools Act." And the original law's name, the "Elementary and Secondary Education Act," seems as outdated as high-waisted pants. (Or are those in again?)

Anyone got any ideas? Post any you have. In the spirit of the Washington Post's Style Invitational, I'll give a worthless prize and some measure of notoriety to the smartypants (you) who comes the closest to getting it right, and honorable mentions to those who are particularly funny.
