Feeling left behind? You probably are.

So evidently, you know that delicious No Child Left Behind law? Well, there's a big, happy loophole in it:

States are helping schools get around that second requirement by using a loophole in the law that allows them to ignore scores of racial groups that are too small to be statistically significant.
Who leaves a racist loophole, hrm? Yup. So now, there's school districts across the nation blatantly leaving out specific racial groups out of their reports -- Asian Americans, American Indians, blacks, you name it!

And that upsets me.
