Federal Officials To Discuss No Child Left Behind
Cheyenne, WY – Wyoming may lose 70 million dollars in federal funding if it doesn't comply with President Bush's centerpiece education law. The No Child Left Behind Act spells out tougher standards for student testing and teacher credentials. It also penalizes schools that don't meet the standards. Federal officials are meeting with state lawmakers Tuesday to discuss the law. That's after several challenges to it were introduced in this year's budget session.
