Teachers in the Richmond, Va., area who have been critical of No Child Left Behind say they are optimistic that President-elect Barack Obama will follow through on promises to reform the law. "I do not know of an educator who is not willing to work with all kinds of kids or not willing to deal with tough kids," Henrico County, Va., Superintendent Fred Morton IV said. "I think it's an insult to the state and the General Assembly for U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings to take credit for the achievement growth in Virginia when we were already well on the way."
