Congress OKs less federal education involvement: Bill overturning No Child Left Behind heads to Obama


ST. PAUL — American schools will feel less federal intervention once the president signs a bill headed his way.

Supporters of a measure the U.S. Senate passed 85-12 Wednesday, sending it to President Barack Obama, say that when it becomes law pressure Washington has put on local schools will ease and school leaders will have more say in what happens in classrooms.

“There’s nothing more important to our kids’ futures — and our country’s economic future — than providing them with a good education,” said Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., adding that the measure known as Every Student Succeeds Act will feed education success.
