Is It Time to Reform Education Reform… Again?

Hosted by

It could be a rare compromise in a sharply divided Congress. Democrats and Republicans want to get rid of No Child Left Behind. The likely replacement would be called Every Child Succeeds — with less standardized testing and more power to states and local districts. But, conservatives complain there’s still too much federal involvement; liberals worry the rights of low-income and minority students will be ignored. We hear details of efforts to thread the needle between teachers, advocates of school choice, civil libertarians and many other interested parties.
