Secretary Duncan Wants No Child Left Behind Reauthorized before August Break

Education Secretary Arne Duncan wants Congress to reauthorize and fix No Child Left Behind before the August recess, according to Mike Allen’s Playbook.

DAVID GREGORY spoke with Education Secretary Arne Duncan for the “Meet the Press” midweek series, “Press Pass.” On the No Child Left Behind battle approaching, Duncan said: “We want to reauthorize and fix No Child Left Behind, and do it before the August recess and work together to do that. … [W]e want to fix it in a bipartisan way, we want to do it before the school-year starts. The current law, No Child Left Behind, is far too punitive, it’s far too prescriptive, it led to a dumbing down of standards, and it led to a narrowing of the curriculum.” http://on.msnbc.com/miHoyx
