No Child Left Behind

Our children fall behind

Everyone waits and watches

The politicians don't mind

Making speeches

About the future

And those young minds

And how the change is coming

"No child left behind"

Give them more tests

The tests don't lie

If you fall behind

It's the fault of your teachers

This is all so unkind

Cut out more programs

Take away the art, the music, the creativity

We are all so blind

the left brain is dominent

It rules the future

This new state of mind

Some prosper

More fail

"No child left behind"

When will we take notice?

Will we even care?

We need to stand united

Or else the nation will fall

A fire needs to be ignited

In the hearts of all

Stop being so divided

Stand up and make a change

And maybe

No child will be left behind
