Minnesota Principals doubtful of meeting NCLB standards





A new survey of more than 700 principals in Minnesota finds nearly all of them are doubtful about meeting federal No Child Left Behind standards by 2014.

The group Minnesota 2020 asked the state's 1,600 school principals to fill out an online survey. More than 700 did and the results of one question particularly stand out.

When asked whether they think all schools will meet the federal standards by 2014, 97 percent said no. Another large majority also said they have already diverted core classroom spending on test preparation costs
