Colo. House committee backs ‘No Child’ repeal

DENVER — Should Congress repeal No Child Left Behind? Democrats and Republicans in Colorado seem to agree Congress should indeed repeal the education law and are near agreement on a resolution telling Congress the education law is “ineffective.”

Resolutions from state legislatures to Congress aren’t binding, but they can spark debate. The resolution asking for the No Child Left Behind law to be repealed cleared the Democrat-controlled Senate Monday and won unanimous support today in the House Education Committee.

The measure makes strong criticism of the Bush-era education law. It says the education law “creates redundancies and inefficiencies” and takes away state control over education. The full House will have to agree to the resolution before it can be sent to Washington.
