Congressman Matheson believes that education is primarily a local issue best determined by parents, teachers and administrators in local communities. Any federal funds should be provided with minimal strings attached. The 2002 No Child Left Behind law has strayed from its initial goal -- that all children should have a chance to succeed in the public education system and is in need of real reform. Congressman Matheson believes that any reauthorization of the Act should increase flexibility in satisfying the "Highly Qualified Teacher" requirements and allow states multiple assessment measures instead of one standardized test in determining progress.
