ABSTRACT
Citing frustration with how U.S. President George W. Bush administration has implemented the No Child Left Behind Act, one of the law's chief congressional architects is suggesting for the first time that "corrective legislation" may be needed, as of February 25, 2004. While the law has increasingly come under fire, including from the leading Democratic presidential candidates, the so-called Big Four lawmakers who took the lead in writing it the chairmen and the ranking minority members on the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate education committee have resisted calls to amend the bipartisan legislation. Now, however, one of those four, Senator Edward M. Kennedy is suggesting he may well push to change the law.
