No Child Left Behind bill passes Senate committee, but no end in sight for recasting Bush law
from The Huffington Post
A lengthy overhaul of the No Child Left Behind Act passed through a Senate education committee, with senators voting 10-12 along party lines. The "Strengthening America's Schools Act" is an over 1,000-page bill authored by Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, who chairs the Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee. It rolls back some of the more stringent aspects of the No Child Left Behind Act, but keeps in place the requirement that states set and report performance targets for their students.
