Many Iowa schools not meeting federal standards
DES MOINES (AP) — More than half of Iowa’s schools did not meet educational targets set by the No Child Left Behind Law during the latest academic year, according to a report released Tuesday.

Buck says the current system doesn’t acknowledge different needs in different schools. He also says schools making progress with disadvantaged students are not rewarded.
