Friday, February 20, 2004 U.S. U.S.: "Feb. 20 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Department of Education is relaxing rules in the Bush administration's No Child Left Behind law to make it easier for schools to meet annual targets aimed at bringing the performance of U.S. students up to grade level in math and reading by 2014, the Washington Post reported.

The changes include lower testing requirements for students with limited knowledge of English. About 28 percent of schools nationwide failed to meet the targets last year, triggering a mandatory set of costly remedial measures, the newspaper said, citing an independent study. "

Good, from what I understand the requirements were off in fantasy land.
