No Child Left Behind
Mitt Romney Strongly Supported No Child Left Behind
Republican Presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney has become fond recently of attacking Rick Santorum for his previous support and "taking one for the team," in regards to No Child Left Behind. But the former Massachusetts Governor also backed the unpopular Bush administration policy. Romney campaigned strongly in support of the measure between 2002 when he first ran for Governor and throughout the 2008 Presidential campaign, acknowledging his support would hurt him with the party's base.
