Key Lawmaker Calls for ‘Serious Changes’ to No Child Left Behind

Posted by DallasBlackBlog on Saturday, August 4, 2007

In remarks on July 30 at the National Press Club in Washington, Rep. George Miller (D-CA), chairman of the House Education Committee, said that “there are no votes in the U.S. House of Representatives for continuing the No Child Left Behind Act without making serious changes to it.”

“Throughout our schools and communities, the American people have a very strong sense that the No Child Left Behind Act is not fair, not flexible, and is not funded. And they are not wrong,” Miller said.

(DBB Note: NCLB should be completely scrapped. Congress should start over and make education for students and teachers instead of ideologues pushing agendas.)
