House Leaves ‘No Child’ Education Law Behind

The House of Representatives on Wednesday passed a bipartisan K-12 education bill that would significantly shift authority over the nation’s 100,000 public schools from the federal government to states and local school districts.

The bill — which passed easily by a margin of 359 to 64, with all the no votes coming from Republicans — would replace No Child Left Behind, the 2002 law that amplified Washington’s role in local classrooms and launched a national system that held schools accountable based on student test scores.
