WRAL-TV reports tonight that less than 25% of Wake County schools met Federal No Child Left Behind standards. That's right, less than 25% met federal standards.

LOOK AT THE WONDERFUL JOB BUSING HAS DONE TO IMPROVE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE.
CONGRATS DEL! WE'LL MAIL YOU A 25% CONGRATULATIONS CERTIFICATE SUITABLE FOR POSTING IN YOUR OFFICE.
Let's play an education quiz!
Del Burns will blame:
A. Ongoing mismanagement by Wake County School System administrators
B. George Bush
C. Greedy taxpayers
D. B & C
And what did our great education leader Del Burns have to say about the greedy taxpayers in Wake County and future school performance?:
"There will be changes," he said. "We won't be as effective at providing the current level of service."
Should we expect 15% or 10% next year then?
And Beverly Clark?:
Beverly Clark, vice chairwoman of the school board, called Cooke's proposal "disappointing" and said his figure was too low to build a "world-class" school system.
Bev - Even if we had given you the extra $55 million, what then? Only 60% of our schools failing instead of 75%?
Yes, once again it's our fault Del.
One last question Del: Can you let us know what you did with the extra $6 million you did not return to the county because of poor growth projections by your staff? I don't think we ever found the 2,290 students. Would an Amber Alert be in order?
LEST MR. BURNS RECEIVE ALL THE PRAISE, MIGHT I RECOMMEND A BOOK? :
