House Republicans Plan to Rewrite No Child Left Behind

 WASHINGTON (AP) — The effort to rewrite the flawed No Child Left Behind education law is heading for a partisan confrontation as House Republicans champion legislation that would strip the federal government of its powers to set standards for students and schools.

A vote Friday on the GOP Student Success Act is expected to be close, but the ultimate outcome is certain: The White House says the bill would engender a veto, and the Democratic-led Senate is writing its own, very different bill.

The theme of the Republican bill is to get Washington out of the business of setting national education goals and return to state and local control the decisions over how best to improve student performance. Democrats say it would cut funding and allow states to lower achievement standards.
