Studies: More Funding Needed for Education Act

Three years after the No Child Left Behind Act was signed into law, urban schools have shown considerable reading and math gains, according to two recent studies. But the studies caution that more funding is needed for schools to meet federal standards. NPR's Ed Gordon discusses the findings with Deborah Jewell-Sherman, superintendent of the Richmond Public School system; Jack Jennings, president and CEO of the Center on Education Policy; and Dough Mesecar, senior policy advisor to Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings.
