Obama to Give 10 States a Waiver on ‘No Child Left Behind’
President Obama will allow ten states to opt out of the ‘No Child Left Behind’ education reforms. The states given leeway must come up with a viable alternate plan to improve education.
FOX News Radio White House Correspondent Mike Majchrowitz reports:
The President has long sought a rewrite of the law worked out between President George W. Bush and the late Senator Ted Kennedy, but Congress has not come up with a substitute.
So the President is granting waivers to 10 states from the requirement that students must be proficient in reading and math by 2014.
Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oklahoma, and Tennessee, all must have a viable substitute plan. New Mexico was denied, but it might get its waiver later.
