NCLB II: No Community Left Behind?

Not sure how far she'll go with this, but Arizona Governer Janet Napolitano apparently has some ideas for a national school reform effort that goes beyond NCLB by "address[ing] fundamental challenges facing the education system."

Napolitano is co-chair of this task force, whose recommendations are not earth-shattering nor particularly realistic, but some are certainly interesting. For instance:
Link neighborhood schools with their communities and families by providing such things as social services, English classes, parenting skills classes and home visits.
