No Child Left Behind Act

Host Bob Edwards talks with Lynn Olson, senior editor at Education Week. Today marks the first anniversary of President Bush's program known as "No Child Left Behind," which sets mandates for standardized testing in the nation's public schools. Olson says although the program is still considered to be in the transitional phase, some officials say more money is needed to allow schools to meet those mandates.
