NCLB reauthorization being drafted

Contact your Senator today! This one will count the most of any for a long time, because:

The draft ESEA reauth bill introduced by Harkin & Enzi will impose tens of  millions more student tests to judge teachers and principals. Their bill maintains all NCLB testing; defines “achievement” and “growth” as test scores; uses scores as the near-sole basis for many educational decisions; imposes Race to the Top’s rigid “improvement” structure on low-scoring schools. 
Senate HELP committee starts work on it Weds. For talking points, contacting Senators, see Do it now! 

And if you want more detailed information about their bill, see
