Blumenthal challenges No Child Left Behind law

Finally someone calls the No Child Left Behind illegal and is doing something about it.

Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said Tuesday the federal lawsuit will contend the law illegally and unconstitutionally requires states and communities to spend millions more than the federal government provides for test development and school reform programs.

"This law is outrageously wrong. It's bad education policy, but it's also blatantly illegal," Blumenthal said.

Hopefully other states will jump on the bandwagon. We'll keep an eye on this case as it develops.

(NOTE: Blumenthal was on the Al Franken Show Friday talking abou the case and we'll post the interview soon)
