Tell your Members of Congress to vote NO on The Every Child Achieves Act (S.1177)
The US Senate has delivered on a promise to write a bill to reauthorize No Child Left Behind (NCLB) that Obama wouldn’t veto. Unfortunately, on July 7th the Every Child Achieves Act (ECAA) moves to the Senate floor to be heard with Obama’s blessing. We need to STOP it!
Under pressure to get the highly unpopular NCLB legislation reauthorized, Republican leadership caved to Obama’s demands and agreed to language which expands, not reduces, the influence of the federal government over schools. It is unclear why Republicans wouldn’t wait until Obama leaves office, which is very soon, and pass a bill that works.
After all, it’s only the largest piece of federal education legislation in over a decade.
