Renaming "No Child Left Behind"

If you go to the Eduwonk blog, you can get a good laugh at some of the names people have thought of to rename No Child Left Behind and change the era of leaving children behind.

Here are some of my favorites:

Double Back Around To Pick Up The Children We Left Behind Act

Not Even We Think This Will Work Act

AARRRG! (Achieving America’s Reading, wRiting and aRithmatic Goals)

Every Child Deserves a Good Education but not Every Child Wants to go to College, Special Ed Children Get Taught Trades Act

Obama’s President Because He Got Off His A** and Worked For It, So Should You! Act

Bankers to Teachers Rehabilitation Program
Provision 1: Double teacher salaries
Provision 2: Remove teacher certification requirements
Provision 3: Hazard pay for teaching underprivileged schools
Provision 4: Keep bonuses under $18 billion

There are many more. You can check them out at Eduwonk blog. Some make me laugh out loud.

But, much more seriously, this one really struck me:

How about simply “We Owe Kids A Better Education Act”?
