Dean says he would have turned down No Child Left Behind money
By Kate Mccann, Associated Press, 11/30/2003 13:15

MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean said Sunday he would have turned down money from the federal No Child Left Behind Act if he still was governor of Vermont.

''Vermont would have been the first state to turn down that money,'' Dean told a crowd of teachers and supporters at Merrimack High School.

Dean said the law lowers the standards for good schools in New Hampshire to make them more like poorly performing schools in Texas.

The Bush administration believes ''the way to help New Hampshire is to make it more like Texas,'' Dean later told supporters in Manchester, adding that ''every school in America by 2013 will be a failing school.''
