Education For A Stronger Tomorrow – Rebranding our Education Law

For three years, I’ve struggled to come up with a new name for the next reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, which is currently operating under the oft ridiculed name “No Child Left Behind” and the ridiculous acronym, NCLB. I knew that when this bill was reauthorized, and drastically changed, it would need a new name.

Never, not once, did I have any inspiration that sounded catchy, and gave a sense of purpose and optimism, without sounding impossible or trite. That is, until now. At last, for some reason, I finally came up with one. So here it is:

Education For A Stronger Tomorrow (EFAST)

I’m not alone in attempting to name this bill. There are many suggestions out there, some serious, though most satirical. Some of these can be seen at eduwonk’s contest on the subject:
