The No Child Left Behind is now being replaced by the Every Student Succeeds Act. The Senate voted Wednesday to replace NCLB. President Barack Obama will sign the bill on Thursday. According to a White House fact sheet, the bill rejects the overuse of standardized tests and one-size-fits-all mandates on our schools, ensures that our education system will prepare every child to graduate from high school ready for college and careers, and provides more children access to high-quality state preschool programs. NCLB was originally signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2002. The law mainly focused on standardized testing.
