This week, U.S. Congressman Jason Altmire (PA-04) met with dozens of superintendents and educators from school districts in North Hills, Beaver County and Lawrence County to discuss how to improve the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). As a member of the House Education and Labor Committee, Congressman Altmire will play a key role in reauthorizing NCLB.
"The No Child Left Behind Act has had a profound impact on America's schools," Congressman Altmire said. "The educators I met with this week provided valuable insights into how NCLB affects students on a daily basis. This feedback -- as well as the comments I have heard from countless parents and teachers over the years -- will be at the forefront of my mind as I work to improve this law."
NCLB is the main law that covers federal aid and programs for elementary and secondary schools (K-12).
