No Wisecrack Is Left Behind

Over at Eduwonk, a gozillion educators, wonks and assorted rabble-rousers are working to rename the No Child Left Behind Act.

Some suggestions are serious:
Quality Education for All Children Act

But most are like these:
All American Children Are Above Average Act
Mental Asset Recovery Plan
Act to Help Children Read Gooder
Double Back Around to Pick Up the Children We Left Behind Act
Rearranging the Deck Chairs Act
Teach to the Test Act
Could We Start Again Please Act
The Act of Contrition
Mega-sized Multiple Choice Exam Act
Weapons of Mass Education Act
Achieving America’s Reading, wRiting and aRithmatic Goals (AARRRG!)
No Child Left Untested
National Testing Services Subsidy Act
No Excuse Left Behind
Every Opportunity to Learn Act
Another Administration, Another Education Act Act
Federal Education Takeover Act
No Teacher Left Unjaded
The Hail Mary With Two Seconds Left on the Clock Act
Ignoring the Impact of Parents and Putting the Blame on Teachers Act

Then there's this golden oldie...
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act
