Peter Shumlin wants Vermont to seek a waiver from parts of the federal No Child
Left Behind Act that he says aren’t working for the state. To get the
waiver, states must agree to a number of education reforms.
Vermont ‘s Education Commissioner is
pleased that the Obama administration is moving to eliminate a key part of "No Child Left
Behind", because he says the law is a "one size fits all"
approach to education that doesn’t work.
