Main Street Applauds Education Reform Bill


WASHINGTON – The Main Street Partnership President Sarah Chamberlain today made the following statement after House Passage of the S. 117, the Conference Report to replace No Child Left Behind:

“Today’s action by Congress brings much needed relief from the schools that are struggling to achieve real results under the heavy-handed approach of No Child Left Behind. This commonsense legislation replaces the controversial common core curriculum, eliminates unnecessary testing and gives parents more transparency so they can monitor student achievement. This is a positive step in the right direction and I look forward to the President signing this legislation into law.”
