Fake Wake

The NYT article of September 25th about a purported educational miracle in Wake County, North Carolina entitled "As Test Scores Jump, Raleigh Credits Integration by Income" has been thoroughly trashed by Parapundit.

The intention of the No Child Left Behind act isn't all that bad, but the Achilles heel of the law is the blatant conflict of interest that's written into it: States must meet requirements for test score gains, but the states are allowed to design, administer, and grade their own tests! That's like passing a law requiring the accounting of the Trump Organization to be audited by Donald Trump.
