Did Reagan Invent the Phrase "No Child Left Behind"? Suddenly It All Makes Sense.

What starts out like a tired complaint about the overuse of the "No _____ Left Behind" slogan gets interesting when its writer, William Safire, asserts that the NCLB phrase -- long thought to have been coined by the CDF's Marion Wright Edelman -- may actually have originated with.... Ronald Reagan (No ... Left Behind).

Is that right? If so, it all suddenly makes sense. After all, NCLB is really a conservative plot to discredit public education and/or turn children into automatons and turn it all over to the private sector.
