Now as Congress and the Bush administration consider the five-year reauthorization of the law, they have the opportunity to address some of NCLB's important problems of commission and omission. The goal of closing the huge achievement gap is laudable and must be addressed effectively.

The reauthorized NCLB should be specific about outcomes and flexible about means of delivering these outcomes.
