NCLB Outrages

The Source for Academic Standards

Siu-Runyan Comment: Here are more companies, which are cashing in on the NCLB Act. So, the question again needs to be asked, "Who profits?" Microsoft and Houghton Mifflin, Edusoft (a subsidiary of Houghton Mifflin), among others, are this company's partners. ETS is also connected, though not listed as a partner.
