NCLB Outrages

Education President Song

(Sing to "I Write The Songs" by Barry Manilow)

Bush promised parents that he'd fix our schools.
That he'd make sure their children didn't turn out fools.
But all the teachers got were lots of rules.
Let's right his wrongs, let's right his wrongs.

NCLB is packed with many flaws.
Unfunded mandates are against the law.
Our education bucks were used for war.
Let's right his wrongs, let's right his wrongs.

Dub's Education Sec has no respect
For teacher's unions. Called them terrorists.
Dub's education law is quite the mess.
Let's right his wrongs, let's right his wrongs.

An education prez, Bush claims to be.
He doesn't even know his A B C's.
Our children need to be NCLB-free.
Let's right his wrongs, let's right his wrongs.

— Madeline Begun Kane, humor columnist
