Congress approves rewrite of K-12 education law
from USA Today
The Senate voted to send President Barack Obama a bill that dramatically overhauls K-12 education policy and ends more than a decade of strict federal control over schools. The Every Student Succeeds Act focuses less on standardized testing than the No Child Left Behind law it replaces, and makes states once again responsible for fixing under-performing schools. The Senate vote was 85-12 to pass the compromise measure, which won plaudits from conservatives and liberals alike. It passed the House 359-64 a week ago.
