Clark County Schools were unable to make adequate yearly progress for a second year in a row under the No Child Left Behind Act.  There may be a reason for hope though.  The Obama Administration is going to give states the opportunity to opt out of the controversial law.  We talk with the district about the recent report and why they continue to struggle.  We also look at standardized tests and their place in education.
