    However, it was largely Federalised with "No Child Left Behind".

    The states just kept the delivery.

      In fact, the particular complaint about NCLB was that it set standards without providing funds...almost the opposite of what the federal role had traditionally been (since Kennedy), which was just providing funds. However, you will find a great deal of difference between various states in terms of education and how they deal with NCLB.
