Chicago's mixed record on school reform:Bush cites city's gains on sixth anniversary of No Child Left Behind. Critics see uneven results.

Date: January 9, 2008
Author: Amanda Paulson
QUOTE: Nationally, [President] Bush has been touting No Child Left Behind (NCLB), crediting it with raising fourth-grade reading scores and narrowing the achievement gap between whites and minorities. Others say they're still waiting to see major results and blame the law for an increased focus on "teaching to the test" rather than giving more resources or training to underfunded schools.
