Obama: Reform No Child Left Behind

President Obama said on Saturday that he plans to reform the No Child Left Behind act in order to improve schools and to better prepare the nation's students for college, Los Angeles Times said.

Obama said that America is falling behind, citing low math and science scores and the fact that America is no longer the leading producer of college graduates.

Obama doesn't plan to get rid of the law, only to change the name and rework it. Teachers unions, who have been against the act since it was enacted under former President Bush, have been critical of his decision, The Washington Post said.
