Congress Continues Federal Boondoggle in Education

UPDATE: On Wednesday, Dec. 9th, one day after publication of this blog, the US Senate reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) in the form of the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA) by a vote of 85-12.

The United States Senate is about to pass the latest iteration of federal overreach in public education, following the House’s approval of the conference report last Wednesday.  The latest boondoggle, entitled Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), is the newest version of President Lyndon Johnson’s 1960’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act.  The most well known version prior to the ESSA was the 2002 No Child Left Behind (NCLB).

School Districts Strangle School Choice

“This is the biggest anti school choice vote by a local school board in state history.” Sandy Shanor, Chair of Laramie County School Board #1

In a historic 5-2 vote last week in Cheyenne, the state’s largest school district passed a solidly anti school choice resolution for use by the Wyoming School Boards Association (WSBA). Laramie County School District #1(LCSD#1) is one of only two districts that currently operate a charter school within their district. The resolution, written by school board member Nate Breen with input from the WSBA, outlined a series of onerous and unnecessary requirements to be placed upon independent charter schools.  Once again, Wyoming parents can point to a consistent pattern of anti school choice behavior by local school boards.
