US Education Secretary on the Spot

January 8th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

U-S Secretary of Education Margaret Spelling spoke to state lawmakers today on the value of accountability. Her remarks came just 12 hours after a Federal appeal court told the US government that it could not force states to spend money enforcing the federally mandated No Child Left Behind. Despite the ruling , which Spelling says will be appealed, she says the national standards are here to stay. In exchange for federal money, we want to see some results and its here to stay. Obviously there are those who want to undermine accountability and thwart the system and sometimes they use the courts to do that.

The lawsuit against No Child Left Behind did not seek to end the law, only to require the Federal government to pay for the costs of the act.
