Elizabeth Edwards Touts Husband's Education Plan

Elizabeth Edwards says the only thing the No Child Left Behind act has accomplished is demoralized teachers.

She made the comments in New Hampshire on Saturday in explaining her husband's plan to overhaul the federal education law.

A day after John Edwards announced his $7 billion a year program for reforming primary education, his wife met with teachers and others involved in education to hear their concerns about the federal law enacted by the Bush administration in 2002.

Speaking at a middle school library, Elizabeth Edwards said she believes No Child Left Behind was an attempt by the Bush administration to pave the way for a voucher system in which public funds would be used to send children to private schools.
