Talking About Education and No Child Left Behind

A report out this week says that thousands of American schools have found one way to try to raise reading and math scores: cut back on teaching everything else. President Bush's "No Child Left Behind" program punishes schools that don't hit their marks on reading and math test scores. In an effort to meet the law, some schools are pushing all but reading, math -- and testing -- to sidelines.
