No Child Left Behind is viewed by its critics as a failed attempt to reform the country's education system. Idaho has not been shy in saying as much. So, under the Obama administration, states can apply for waivers to be released from the requirements as long as they improve preparation and evaluation of the students.

In a story from the Idaho Statesman, a recent list was released of states that had been granted a release and Idaho is not one of them. The application is still being worked on per recommendations from the Obama administration. Melissa McGrath, spokeswoman for the Department of Education, says she expects Idaho to be approved in August or September.
