The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) is long overdue for reauthorization, and pressure is mounting to get it done before NCLB labels the vast majority of our schools as failures. But there’s much that must happen to fix NCLB, and to get federal-education policy overall working as it should. Neal McCluskey, associate director of Cato’s Center for Educational Freedom, and Lindsey Burke, education policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation, will provide a detailed overview of what Washington can and can’t do in education, and will discuss competing proposals for reauthorizing this very intrusive — and troubled — law.
