Bennet, HELP Committee Advance Bill to Fix No Child Left Behind
Bennet Secures Key Provisions in Bill, Pledges Continued Push for Additional Changes
Apr 16, 2015Senator Bennet helped to pass the Every Child Achieves Act, a bill to fix No Child Left Behind, out of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee. The bill, approved 22-0 by the committee, reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the chief federal law addressing K-12 education. It reforms many of the policies from No Child Left Behind, the previous version of the bill, while maintaining several key policies that have proved successful.
