Upton Votes on Student Success Act

UNDATED (WHTC) -- Educators, school administrators and parents agree that the current federal education policy no longer serves the needs of students and is unfairly punishing cash-strapped school districts across the country.  Today, Congressman Fred Upton voted for the Student Success Act, House Bill 5, which reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act to be in effect for five years.  The policy has not been revisited since the enactment in 2001 of No Child Left Behind Act, which expired in 2007.  ESEA provides federal funding to elementary and secondary schools, mainly to supplement state and local funding for disadvantaged students.  The bill now heads to the Senate for consideration.
