JAMESTOWN PUBLIC SCHOOLS: FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK What is No Child Left Behind?
I had just come to Jamestown in 2001 when No Child Left Behind was passed. It promised more funds for education and an emphasis on student achievement and teacher accountability. No one can find faul... Posted on 9/21/11 at 2:19 PM
The furry and faithful companion of North Dakota Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad has been diagnosed with cancer.

Sen. Kent Conrad says a top U.S. Department of Agriculture official is coming to North Dakota next week to get a firsthand look at the effect that this year's flooding has had on the state's farmers and ranchers.
I did a double take after reading the recent letter, “Where is the budget, Sen.

It may have been the “best prospect” of bridging the political aisle to deal with the nation’s fiscal crisis, but the so-called Gang of Six appears to have suffered a fatal blow in its work to develop a comprehensive deficit reduction roadmap that a divided Congress could stand behind.

It’s early in the process of negotiating a new federal education law this year, but local officials say if they could craft the successor to No Child Left Behind, they’d emphasize growth in knowledge, back off the narrow focus on reading and math, and include programs for rural schools.
