The newshour had three segments on No Child Left Behind: one: how schools are gaming the system so they can continue to get funding;two:how if we only changed over to charter schools, all our test scores would go up, even if we don't try to measure the other reasons test scores might go up or down; and three: how even the very best teachers are failures because their students who just came to America last year aren't up to grade level in English.

In Memphis, a local charter school has been closed. The students will have to be placed in other schools. There is some lesson in this, I believe.
