ABSTRACT
The article reports that residents of a Colorado town have decided they would rather pay more in taxes than force their district to comply with the federal No Child Left Behind Act. Taxpayers in the 95-student Kit Carson school district narrowly approved a property-tax levy to replace the $25,000 in federal money the district will lose by dropping out of the law. Two districts in suburban Chicago and the Academy School District No. 20 in Colorado Springs have withdrawn from the law in the past two school years.
