Of course it was LIBERALS who hated NCLB, because it threatened their elite programs.

Well, no. It threatened public education. The way the guidelines were set up, there were always higher goals to meet - to the point that eventually all public schools would fail.

Have you heard of asymptotic limits? That's the graph where the line never quite gets the ever increasing goal.
