No Child Left Behind -- six years overdue for an update -- is inherently flawed, according to Education Secretary Arne Duncan. In this opinion article, he writes about his disappointment that the U.S. Congress has not passed a replacement to the country's education law and his desire for "a bill that raises the bar, protects children, supports and improves effective teaching and school leadership, and provides flexibility and supports good work at the state and local level."
