House poised to leave 'No Child' behind

(Politico) Republicans lined up Thursday behind a bill that would roll back the federal government’s involvement in education, despite concerns earlier this week that the party’s more conservative members weren’t on board with the legislation.

The Student Success Act already would strike many of the key provisions of No Child Left Behind and kill several signature Obama administration education programs.

Amendments approved Thursday took further shots at the federal role in education. One that was adopted would delete a requirement that states evaluate teachers based on student outcomes, making those evaluations optional.
