Puh-lease, Bush wasn't responsible for NCLB -- Kennedy and his cronies penned it. Regardless, if you REALLY want to know where your tax dollars are being wasted in public education, look to Special Ed. Every other kid and his brother has got some pseudo-psychological label which qualifies him to be dumbed down and a lot of documentation to be written about him. It's a federally-mandated bloodsucking monster of a system that is sucking the out of public schools across the nation. Don't expect politicians from either side of the aisle to even bring it up -- would be political suicide to appear as against those with "special needs". The teachers' unions aren't going to talk about it because it would divide them in half -- even though it's common knowledge among themselves. The parents aren't going to talk about because hey, it's their kid getting all the attention.
