When dining at a local restaurant recently, I quizzed my Utah-educated grandchildren — ages 8, 16, 17 and 19 — about the amount for a 20 percent tip. None got the correct answer, although the 8-year-old came closest. Then came your editorial (Nov. 28) advocating the repeal of the NCLB law. If our local school boards, because of the NEA and the local unions, cannot see that our children get a basic education, then Uncle Sam needs to step in. If we want the feds' money, we need to play by their rules — which will help improve our kids' education.
