(Washington, DC) — An overhaul to “No Child Left Behind” was signed into law by President Obama this morning. Minnesota Senator Al Franken wrote several provisions in the just-passed bipartisan “Every Student Succeeds Act” and says this is an opportunity to get things right when it comes to the country’s education policies. Franken says the bill allows states more flexibility to help fix failing schools–specifically in the areas of mental health, principal training and education of students in foster care. He calls it a “big win” for students, parents, teachers and schools in Minnesota.
