Rep. Bishop Responds to President Obama’s Education Mandates for States Desperate to Ditch NCLB
"As a teacher, I am opposed to NCLB. On the surface, the President's decision to give states some relief from NCLB would appear to be a good thing. However, his decision to replace one set of mandates with another set of mandates does nothing to help empower states to address their unique educational needs. Giving states greater flexibility and autonomy, not more restrictive federal requirements that come with strings attached, is the only way forward."
