Many have been looking forward to an overhaul or elimination of NCLB. Some states are choosing actions that essentially make NCLB void or else force the federal government to act punitively. They are choosing to ignore portions of the act that they don't like.
Doing what probably needed to be done years ago, some states have given public notice that they will not honor some of the act's provisions.
Unfortunately, many are not going as far as I'd like them to, but that's the way things go. States need to get to the point where results matter and making people happy is less important.
It's time for all states and the feds to get together and overhaul NCLB or get rid of it and provide educational options for kids that give them opportunities to lead successful lives.
