Half of MN Schools Fail

The Minnesota Department of Education has released a stunning state report card for 2011. Nearly half (47 percent) of Minnesota schools didn't make the grade under the federal No Child Left Behind law.

School teachers and administrators have plenty of excuses to explain away the situation. Certainly some of the excuses and complaints about NCLB are valid. However, by any measure -- Minnesota is obviously facing systemic failure.
