18. Yes.
If you mean Ted Kennedy helped write it.

No sarcasm back. I don't buy Kerry's "George didn't do what I voted for" rhetoric on IWR, either. I believe that, in the case of NCLB, most democrats were fooled by all of the goodies included. Which, of course, were not funded. I'll forgive the vote. But not the actual writing of this weapon of public education distruction.

I'm on the front lines under this legislation. I'm seeing it destroy public education. I'm seeing a generation of kids heading for adulthood whose futures have been damaged. I'm seeing a career I sacrificed years of my life for, and have yet to finish paying for, turn into a job I can't live with myself for performing.
At the least, a candidate who wanted my vote wouldn't be proud of having helped author this piece of toxic waste.
