    Government programs of that kind are all the same.  Massive amounts of money is appropriated, a huge administrative body is created, little if any benefit is seen by the targeted people.

    It's moot. It has been replaced by the Every Student Succeeds Act (2015), an act that reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (1965) and included Title I provisions applying to disadvantaged students, like NCLB did, but stripped away federal control by no longer making federal funding to states contingent on testing scores, something Congress was somewhat forced to do as pending cases filed by states alleging making funding contingent on test scores was unconstitutional were about to be heard before the Supreme Court and were about to be lost since governing matters of education is excluded among the "Enumerated Powers" of the US government, as prescribed by the US Constitution. The reason why Congress was "forced" is both the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch have increasingly worked to gain control over education but also continually backdown when what controls they may gain are challenged before the Supreme Court out of fear that if the Supreme Court gets to actually hear a case on the matter of education and federal control, the Supreme Court will issue a sweeping verdict that will eliminate any and all federal input in education, like eliminating the Department of Education and the position of Secretary of Education in the Cabinet as being unconstitutional. The risk being so great, the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch continually take express action to backdown whenever what controls they establish are disputed to the level of Supreme Court, express action that repeals those controls and leaves no issue remaining to be heard before the Supreme Court, essentially killing the case in order to not create an opening for the Supreme Court to nullify their other unconstitutional controls.
