Teachers’ Union Head: Clinton Has Learned From No Child Left Behind Mistakes
Though it hasn’t come up in this election, Hillary Clinton might wish she could get back the votes she cast on June 14 and Dec. 18, 2001.
On both of those days, Clinton voted for No Child Left Behind, the initially-popular but eventually-despised education reform bill.
Of course, Clinton wasn’t the only one to vote for the bill. Bipartisan majorities in Congress supported it, with 91 votes in favor on June 14 and 87 in favor on December 18. Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., was one if its biggest supporters.
