NYT Supports the Reauthorization of No Child Left Behind

Dec 8, 2015

ONE STRONG FAVORABLE VOTE: A New York Times op-ed published this week supported the No Child Left Behind bill that has passed the House and is up for a vote in the Senate this week. The Gray Lady applauded the bill’s authors for keeping standardized tests on the books—but de-emphasizing test scores as the core metric for how well a school is doing. “The bill isn’t perfect. But it is a considerable improvement over the original law and would continue pushing schools toward better performance,” the Times opined. We’ll see if the Senate agrees.
