Qualifying schools to be granted No Child Left Behind waivers

The Department of Education announced on Monday that the Obama administration will provide qualifying states with a waiver from No Child Left behind, the education program that links federal aid to results from standardized testing.

The program has been heavily criticized in the past and President Obama has called for Congress to reform the program before the school year begins, although legislation has yet to be passed.

Today on American Morning, Michelle Rhee, founder of StudentsFirst, joins Christine Romans to weigh in on what this measure says about the No Child Left Behind program and to discuss potential solutions for improving America's education system.
