House Passes Overhaul of NCLB

Today, the House passed a sweeping overhaul of No Child Left Behind on a largely partisan 221-207 vote. The bill would roll back much of the landmark 2001 education bill, ending federal progress goals and letting states set their own targets for how much students learn. It also stops the Education Department from encouraging states to adopt common academic standards. The bill faces a veto threat from President Barack Obama and is likely going nowhere in the Senate.
