As Senate passes ESEA bill, focus shifts to compromise
from Education News
The U.S. Senate has passed an update to the much-criticized No Child Left Behind education with a vote of 81-17. The bill cleared a week after the House barely passed its version of the rewrite of the 2002 law. This win was one that Republican supporters had worked months to achieve. Maggie Severns and Kimberly Hefling, writing for Politico, say it is now time for the two chambers and the Obama administration to negotiate a bill that will be acceptable to the President and House Republicans. The House GOP members passed their bill without any Democratic support and under the threat of having it vetoed.
