    Transparency in business after the corruption during the Clinton administration where businesses where cooking their books so that the CEOs could make more money through stock options. Enron was the business to hate then.

    No Child Left Behind. The big shocker that came from this was that even the teachers and many principals could pass the high school exit exam. Principals have to have doctorate degrees in my state. If the teacher's didn't know the material, then how where the students suppose to know?
