Maine is "not going to take it any more."
That's Governor Baldacci's response to the unfunded mandates of No Child Left Behind. From the AP:
The Democratic governor is also encouraging Maine Attorney General Steven Rowe to add the state as a plaintiff in a lawsuit challenging the federal law, Baldacci spokesman Lynn Kippax said.
The National Education Association is challenging the law in federal court in Michigan. School districts in Michigan, Vermont and Texas are also joining the lawsuit, along with teachers´ union chapters in those states and more than a half dozen others, including New Hampshire.
