(Mitch Wertlieb) Why would a school district reject aid from the federal government? Well, at least one school district in Vermont has already done so, and now another is considering following suit. It all has to do with concerns about meeting the standards for student testing as mandated by the federal "No Child Left Behind" Act.
Joining us on the line to explain why the Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union Board is contemplating a rejection of the "No Child Left Behind" aid is Bud Myers, Vermont State Deputy Commissioner of Standards and Assessments. Thanks for speaking with us.
