According to the News & Observer of Raleigh, she had choice words for her NCLB critics.

N&O excerpt:

Spellings touted North Carolina as among the pioneers in state testing programs that preceded No Child Left Behind’s requirements. No Child Left Behind was signed into federal law in 2002 as part of an effort to close the achievement gap.

“Absolutely, there’s more to praise about North Carolina than to criticize,” Spellings said during a meeting with the State Board of Education.

Spellings is touring the nation to talk about No Child Left Behind and to get feedback on how to improve the program.
