On Tuesday the group met at the Perry Perk coffeehouse and celebrated the long-hoped-for end to the No Child Left Behind policies, begin in 2002 by the U.S. Department of Education under Pres. George W. Bush. This year’s graduating seniors at Perry High School have had their entire educational career conditioned by the largely discredited policies.
