NCLB a Failure if 82% of Schools Failing?

"The number of schools labeled as "failing" under the nation's No Child Left Behind Act could skyrocket dramatically this year, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Wednesday.

"The Department of Education estimates the percentage of schools not meeting yearly targets for their students' proficiency in in math and reading could jump from 37 to 82 percent as states raise standards in attempts to satisfy the law's mandates."

Does this not clearly indicate, using the same assessment methods of NCLB, that No Child Left Behind itself is a dismal failure?
