Enzi Predicts Few Changes To NCLB
Laramie, Wy – Senator Mike Enzi says the No Child Left Behind Act has improved education in America and will not be changed significantly by the next administration. Enzi spoke at the Ellbogen Institute in Laramie today (Wednesday).
The senator said whichever candidate wins the presidency the federal education policy will remain intact, even if it's given a different name.
"It won't be gutted completely, it will be almost the same, it will have some technical fixes that some people have pointed out as being a problem, but all of the candidates have seen the advances in education since it was instituted, and their not going to backtrack on that.'
Popular support for No Child Left Behind has dropped off. In a debate this week, none of the Republican candidates for U-S House said they support the law in its current form.
