I am a strong supporter of the No Child Left Behind Act. As a parent, I can think of very few things that are more important to me than my child's education, and I support President Bush's efforts to help all children.
No Child Left Behind does all the things that we have long asked for in America's schools: focusing the necessary resources on the students and schools that need the most help, holding educators accountable, and making sure all children learn.
It does this while investing more in education than any previous administration, a fact often lost in the political debate.
And it's working! The No Child Left Behind Act has generated impressive results, with reports showing rising test scores in states across the nation.
