Yesterday I had the privilege of speaking with Congressman Kevin Cramer about the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. In its current form (No Child Left Behind), ESEA has created many pitfalls for public schools. The new version will eliminate AYP, eliminate federal accountability reporting, turn decisions about yearly assessments over to the states (where it belongs), and make funding more flexible so it is equitable. The changes are phenomenal and give back local control of education. The new version is out of committee and will hopefully go before both House and Senate next week for a vote. If you agree with the need for these changes and would like to see ESEA reauthorized with these changes, I urge you to contact Congressman Cramer, Senator Heitkamp, and Senator Hoeven and express this to them. Please help us take back control of the education of our children! Happy Thanksgiving! Tim Godfrey, Superintendent
