Structural Reasons for NCLB Failures

Agree or not, it's always interesting to to hear views from different sources making somewhat different points than the same old folks saying the same old things. And so:

"Education reform has an exceptionally fraught history in the United States, despite the universally acknowledged inadequacy of the primary and secondary education systems," claims today's Forbes Magazine post from Oxford Analytica (Bush's Education Reforms Falter). "This woeful record, which now includes President George Bush's No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), is due to the idiosyncrasies of the U.S. political system and serious structural disincentives. Unless these challenges can be overcome in relatively short order, NCLB may fail."
