On Tuesday, January 25 at 9:00 p.m. (EST), President Obama will deliver the State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress and millions of Americans watching from home. The State of the Union address allows the president to report on the condition of the nation, but it also gives him a national stage on which to outline his legislative agenda for the coming year.
But will his legislative agenda include education? The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), currently known as No Child Left Behind, is long overdue for a revamp. Will the president use the State of the Union to call on Congress to reauthorize the law in 2011? And will he offer any specific proposals on what the reauthorization should include?
To help you keep track of these and other issues, the Alliance for Excellent Education has brought back its popular State of the Union Bingo game. There are three different versions of Bingo cards if you want to play with friends or you want to play more than one card at a time. Bingo cards and instructions on how to play are available at https://all4ed.org/publication_material/SOTUBingo2011.
