While we continue to fight for local control of education, the federal government looks to eliminate it.
The No Child Left Behind law created a culture of extreme testing and oppressive federal intervention on students, teachers and school administrators.
Next week the House will vote to reauthorize No Child Left Behind (H.R. 5 Student Success Act), thereby extending this outdated education policy through 2021 and it MUST BE STOPPED!
From NCLB came Race to the Top, and from RTTT came the Common Core State Standards Initiative. If HR 5 passes, the federal government will own education!
HR 5 will transform all schools into government run schools, just like Europe. This will be accomplished through the use of NATIONALIZED TESTS and CURRICULUMS and Title I money.
Page 552-553 in this 597 page bill clearly states that if a State participates in federal funding grants and programs (Title I) the state waives its rights and gives full authority to the federal government. Click Here to read the bill
TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION!
Call your Representative and tell him/her to vote "NO" on HR 5!
Tell them we want to SUNSET NCLB and defund the Dept of Education. We do not want this failed program to continue.
The vote is expected nextTuesday, so ACT NOW!Click here to contact your representative
