ESEA rewrite includes debate over sex education, funding
from Education News
The U.S. House of Representatives has voted to pass an education bill that would place a ban on funding for sexual education courses that "normalize teen sexual activity as an expected behavior." The bill, known as the Student Success Act, is included as a portion of the Republican rewrite of the No Child Left Behind initiative created by President George W. Bush. The rewrite has been the subject of much debate over issues including the use of standardized testing, Common Core, teacher evaluations, and how large a role the federal government should play in education in comparison to state governments.
