Obama asks Congress to revise No Child law
President Obama asked Congress to rewrite No Child Left Behind, saying the nine-year-old law had lost much of its impact, the Washington Post reports.
"I want every child in this country to head back to school in the fall knowing that their education is America's priority," Obama said Monday at Arlington County's Kenmore Middle School, the Post reported. "Let's seize this education moment. Let's fix No Child Left Behind."
No Child Left Behind requires reading and math tests each year to gauge how much progress schools make in closing achievement gaps. Obama's plan calls for less-intrusive federal oversight amd more aggressive efforts to fix the issues, according to the Washington Post.
