Alexander Statement on House Passage of Bill to Fix No Child Left Behind

Posted on July 9, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 9 – Senate education committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on House passage of legislation to fix No Child Left Behind:

Newsweek magazine calls No Child Left Behind ‘the education law everyone wants to fix,’ so it’s hard to overstate the importance of what Chairman Kline has accomplished in passing a bill to do just that. House passage of this bill is the first step, Senate passage next week will be the next step, then we can go to conference, get a bill to the president’s desk, fix the law and improve the future for 50 million children in 100,000 public schools.”
