look up any word, like ratchet:
No Child Left Behind on steroids and with a different name. Which the Democrats and some Republicans still support for some reason. Basically it's like Obamacare for education. Mark my words, it is going to be an even bigger failure than NCLB and will probably affect students with special needs especially negatively.
Person A: Why do Democrats give the GOP so much trouble about NCLB and then turn around and shove Common Core down our throats?

Person B: I have no clue but they are both terrible programs.
