"Excuses Are No Longer Allowed Under No Child Left Behind"

The following is an excerpt from a recent article in The Maui News quoting Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle on the positive changes No Child Left Behind is bringing to Hawaii's schools:

" 'In Hawaii, the school system can no longer write off the children in Kalihi, or Waianae, or Puna, or Lihue, or Kahului,' Lingle said. 'They can no longer make excuses that we can't expect any more of these children in these neighborhoods because their parents are poor, because they speak English as a second language, or because they come from certain ethnic groups. Excuses are no longer allowed under No Child Left Behind.' "

As a mark of respect for Ronald Reagan, fortieth President of the United States, the Extra Credit will not be published on Friday, June 11.
