NCLB REAUTHORIZATION PUT ON HOLD IN SENATE UNTIL NEXT YEAR
The Senate education committee will not take up reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind Act until early next year, the Associated Press reported on Nov. 2. Committee chairman Sen.Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) and ranking minority member Sen. Michael Enzi (R-Wyo.) said that more time was needed to prepare a Senate bill. The news agency reported that the House also might delay consideration of a bill; so far, the House Education and Labor Committee has released a draft discussion of reauthorization but no bill has been introduced.
