URGENT: Contact Senators Ayotte and Shaheen TODAY (NO on reauthorizing NO Child Left Behind)

Time is of the essence.
ESEA (No Child Left Behind) will be on the floor of the US Senate tomorrow, TUESDAY
Call Senator Ayotte and Shaheen and say: STOP the Reauthorization of ESEA (No Child Left Behind)
“What are Senator Alexander, Senator Murray, Representative Kline, and Representative Murphy NOT telling their colleagues about the Reauthorization of ESEA? They are purposely not pointing out the impact of how each state’s MEDICAID costs will skyrocket with the passage of the Reauthorization of ESEA. It’s all about mental health and “direct student services” which are described as “meaningful CHOICE.” These mandatory psychological services in the affective domain – attitudes, values, beliefs, and dispositions of the students – are included in both bills for the Reauthorization of No Child Left Behind and will be offered as CHOICE for all private and religious schools.”

Governor Jeb Bush and the NEA: Working Against NH Parents

Governor Jeb Bush came to New Hampshire a few weeks ago and told us why we should support the re-authorization of No Child Left Behind NCLB. Many teachers and parents were shocked to learn the Governor not only supports the Common Core Standards in our schools, but now he’s trying to get us to support re-authorizing No Child Left Behind.

At what point do we say, he’s out of touch? Did he even read HR5 for instance? All 600 pages PLUS? And if so did he read about the many problems in the Bill that will continue to plague our local schools?

How can Jeb Bush ever be trusted as President if he is that out of touch with the parents in New Hampshire who’ve had to endure the failures of No Child Left Behind and the current problems with Common Core?

To make matters worse, now the NEA is teaming up with Governor Bush to push for reauthorizing NCLB too.

Yes you read that right. The nations teachers union, instead of calling for repealing the law, they too want to re-authorize it in their way.

Their recent e-mail to teachers referenced the Senate version of NCLB however many of the problems in the House version, continue in the Senate version too.

No where does the NEA call for accountability to PARENTS. Right now this accountability scheme is to bureaucrats.

No where do they call for the repeal of NCLB. They simply want to re-work it and pass it.

We’d like to see Governor Bush and the NEA to start putting parents back in control of their local schools. NCLB and the current proposed legislation continue to leave parents out.

Teachers and parents are fed up with the over-reach by the federal government into our schools. We do not need an out-of-touch Governor and the union leadership joining together in an effort to re-authorize legislation that continues to cut parents out of the picture.

Governor Hassan’s Education Failure: Some States Without NCLB Waivers Say They Dodged a Bullet

GOVERNOR HASSAN has shown ZERO leadership when it comes to “education” in NH. She follows the Fed’s lead and yet now we see her lack of leadership is creating big problems for state and local control in education.

The US DOE waived a Federal Law.  That law should be repealed.   Now the NH Dept. of Ed. has to sign away local and state control in order to qualify for a waiver from No Child Left Behind.

In fact, they argue, not to having to negotiate with the U.S. Department of Education on the finer points of say, teacher evaluation, rigorous standards, or school turnarounds has made it a lot easier to chart their own paths on those sticky issues.
