HERITAGE ACTION POSITION: NO

Vote Description

The Every Child Achieves Act of 2015 (S. 1177), introduced by Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), would reauthorize the Bush-era No Child Left Behind law until 2021.

Heritage Action Position

The 792-page bill represents a missed opportunity to show a clear contrast with the progressives’ failed big-government education agenda. The bill does not eliminate programs or reduce spending, being filled with numerous "such sums as may be necessary" clauses. It does not eliminate all the burdensome federal mandates, requiring state-authored accountability plans that must be approved by the Department of Education. It would not enable states to opt out of programs that fall under NCLB. It would not provide states the Title I portability necessary to allow school choice for public schools, charter schools, and private schools.
