States offered more time to ignore education law
from The Associated Press via Chicago Sun-Times
States can request permission to ignore parts of the No Child Left Behind education law through the spring of 2016, the U.S. Education Department said. The long-term offer underscores the intensive work states have already undertaken on school reforms in exchange for flexibility from Washington, as well as a dour outlook that Congress will take action to replace the outdated goals of No Child Left Behind. The law expired in 2007 and included goals now seen as overly ambitious.
