NCLB Tweaks?

Last week, the New York Times carried the news that

The Bush administration, acknowledging that the federal No Child Left Behind law is diagnosing too many public schools as failing, said Tuesday that it would relax the law’s provisions for some states, allowing them to distinguish schools with a few problems from those that need major surgery.

I wondered whether Tennessee would apply to be one of the "up to ten" states allowed to adjust the punitive process, applying resources where they’re most needed.  Saturday’s Tennessean indicates that the state will apply — but that article seems to focus primarily on the special-education component.

It will be interesting to see where this goes.
