No Child Left Behind 2.0 While working to fix the economy, healthcare and national security, the Obama administration is also taking a run at education reform. A blueprint released this week is aimed at changing the No Child Left Behind Act. President Obama's plan calls for more rewards and fewer punishments for schools. We'll find out what that means, what Ohio educators have to say about the plan and how it lines up with regional reforms already underway.
