6 California cities get No Child Left Behind delay

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
School districts in San Francisco, Oakland and six other California cities were granted at least a one-year reprieve from the stringent requirements and severe sanctions of the federal No Child Left Behind law Tuesday, a waiver otherwise given only to states.

The waiver, granted by the Obama administration, means the districts will no longer be required to label low-performing schools as failures and require that they make staffing or other changes in hopes of boosting test scores.
Nice ObamaCare law you have there: it would be too bad if a future Republican President gave everyone a waiver.
