No laughing matter for NCLB
Hillary Clinton made news last night by appearing on Jay Leno and joking about coming under sniper fire in Burbank. But she also talked issues (this is Hillary Clinton after all) and mentioned that "I want to end the No Child Left Behind program because I don't think it's working the way it was promised." So how did Leno's audience react? Watch here (the action starts at about 6:11):
It's one thing when liberal activists or teachers union conventions give this kind of treatment to NCLB; when a live studio audience of the most mainstream of mainstream television shows reacts like this, you know the federal law is in trouble.
