Rough path seen for Senate's ESEA bill
from Education Week
The prospects for a bipartisan, comprehensive rewrite of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act moving through Congress this session remain cloudy, even after a hearing on a bill that was intended to serve as a prerequisite for sending it to the floor of the U.S. Senate. During the Nov. 8 hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, Republicans continued to express tepid support for the measure, while civil rights advocates typically aligned with Democrats lambasted the bill as a major step backward on student accountability.
