Idaho School Supt. To Testify In D.C. On “No Child Left Behind”

(AP) – Public schools chief Tom Luna is expected to testify later this week before a U.S. House committee on efforts to overhaul the nation’s governing education law. Meanwhile, state lawmakers are urging Congress to repeal No Child Left Behind, which expects every child to be at grade level in math and reading by 2014. Idaho Falls Republican Rep. Linden Bateman says the program is so deeply flawed, efforts to rewrite the law are akin to “rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.” Bateman’s resolution supports nullifying the law and was advanced Tuesday in the Idaho House. State education officials plan to seek a federal waiver later this month that would allow the state to reject the latest benchmarks under No Child Left Behind while adopting its own system for grading public schools.
