Care about No Child Left Behind? Tell your representative!

President Bush's No Child Left Behind act is coming up for reauthorization in congress, and many are calling for changes. In particular, Edspresso reports today about the Derby, Kansas, board of education's decision to issue a resolution on the matter.

The board voted to endorse the No Child Left Behind Improvement Act (also known as HR 648) with specific recommendations for greater local control. The school board from Highland, Indiana, has followed suit. The Northwest Indiana Times reports National School Board association urged the board to issue the resolution.

So the wave is starting, and local education groups are weighing in. Check out the current state of No Child Left Behind, and if you have thoughts, tell your congressional representative or organize a resolution within your PTA or district.
