Obama Promises To Fix "No Child Left Behind"

Barack Obama picked up the endorsement of the American Federation of Teachers, during the convention on Sunday. Obama spoke to the second largest teachers union via satellite in which he promised to fix "the broken promises," of the no child left behind law. He said that the law had done little besides label schools and students as failures.

Senator Hillary Clinton appeared at the AFT convention on Saturday to rally support for Obama. The AFT who had supported Clinton's presidential campaign endorsed Obama on Sunday by an enormous margin. The National Education Association which is the largest teachers union, has already endorsed Obama.

NEA almost always endorses the Democrat. Not really a big shocker there...locally in Missouri, the MSTA organization almost always endorses the Republican candidate.

Thanks for the post newsy. Interesting... If elected, I hope this is one promise that he will stand behind.

Terry: thanks for posting. I have to admit I am an undecided voter. Neither candidate up to this point has done anything to convince me to give them my vote. But I will vote.
Bob...who?
