A week has passed since House Speaker John Boehner announced his resignation, and since then much speculations has arisen around how this will impact the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), now known as No Child Left Behind. Upon this news last week, Alliance President Bob Wise shared his thoughts on the matter based on the current situation and his past experience, having been a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 18 years and in office the last time a speaker resigned in 1989. As Wise explained, with Boehner’s resignation, the ability to secure Republication votes for a bill that will have to satisfy both House Democrats and President Obama becomes slim to none.
