Question about NCLB ignored at forum

On Oct. 17, I attended the League of Women Voters candidate forum for the Turlock Unified School District Board of Education. I was early, and filled out one of the first cards with a question for board candidates. About 40 people showed up, excluding the candidates, League of Women Voter personnel and various PTA members and assistants. The questions were read and directed to each candidate by the moderator (about six questions in all). Questions included the possibility of building a new stadium for Pitman High and methods for selecting a new superintendent.

My card never came up. I doubt it was for lack of time, but perhaps it was my question: "Please discuss your position regarding the No Child Left Behind Act."
