Bush Calls for More Testing under NCLB

At a Virginia School, Bush called for extending testing to grade 11 under No Child Left Behind. Rather than a smaller Federal government, which Republicans traditionally support, the president continues to advocate expanded involvement of the Fed in the business that rightfully belongs to parents (or at most, states). The refrain for more government control continues unabated. Yes, schools are in trouble. No, more government is not the answer.
