    The more the government calls attention to the plight of anything, whether it is children, senior citizens or women's services,  the more it is false, and nothing but a device to accomplish the opposite of the stated end result.
    It is nothing but window-dressing, and grandstanding in an attempt to distract the public from what is really going on behind the scenes, for while they yammer on with their "feel good" titles and slogans, they are still doing everything they can to preserve their own jobs at the expense of everyone else.
    Have you noticed they are still balancing budgets on the backs of the poor and the schools, continually cutting funding to education?  How is that not leaving children behind?  How is cutting money from community services and recreation programs not leaving children behind?
    No, sir--this program needs to be re-named accurately as "EVERY child left behind."

    The worse the educational system becomes, the less educated the population becomes, and the less educated the population, the easier it is to control with fear-mongering tactics, which then makes it very easy to strip away our freedoms under the guise of "protecting us." 
    Trust nothing the government says:  do your own research.
