Shrub's Plan to Leave Every Child Behind

Shrub wants to expand his system of high stakes federal testing to high schools, because multiple choice bubbles are the way of the future! From CQ Midday Update:

Despite skepticism in Congress, President Bush today said he will seek $1.5 billion in his fiscal 2006 budget to expand the testing and standards required under the No Child Left Behind Act into high schools.

In a speech at J.E.B. Stuart High School in Falls Church, Va., Bush noted that American high school students lag their peers in other countries. "Testing is important," he said. "Testing at high school levels will help us become more competitive as the years go by. Testing in high schools will make sure that our children are employable for the jobs of the 21st century." Bush is likely to meet some resistance, not only from Democrats who say the administration has not sought sufficient funding for No Child Left Behind, but also from some GOP skeptics who want to see problems with the law resolved before it is expanded.

Bubbles, bubbles everywhere and not a drop of common sense or learning to spare.
