Washington Teacher, Researcher Testify On Education Law

A Seattle elementary school teacher and a University of Washington researcher testified Tuesday before Congress on the federal education law known as No Child Left Behind, as lawmakers consider how to revise the framework for public schools.

Rachelle Moore, a first grade teacher at Madrona K-8 School, and Dan Goldhaber, director of the Center for Education Data and Research at the University of Washington, were asked by U.S. Sen. Patty Murray to share their opinions with the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.

Murray, the senior U.S. senator from Washington state, is the ranking Democrat on the Senate committee. She has made updating the federal education law, which is formally known as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, a priority.
