August 08, 2011 09:32 pm
Last week, Bob Wise, president of the Alliance for Excellent Education and former governor of West Virginia, was joined by Phillip Lovell, the Alliance’s vice president of federal advocacy, and Amanda Beaumont, the Alliance’s director of federal advocacy for a webinar on the congressional debate on the debt-limit ceiling.
During the webinar, Wise, Lovell, and Beaumont discussed how the debate over the debt limit impacts education reform. They also discussed recent action by the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate to rewrite the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, currently known as the No Child Left Behind Act. Additionally, they dicussed the U.S. Department of Education’s plans to provide waivers to states in the event that Congress does not act to reauthorize ESEA.
A short (four minutes) highlight video from the webinar is available below. The complete video from the webinar is available here.
