Reauthorizing and improving NCLB is critical to our nation’s future — to accelerating progress in assuring that all students, regardless of race or economic status, have access to a quality education. Every day we wait, thousands of students drop out of school, teachers continue to struggle for the support they need, and too many of our students, schools and communities miss out on the benefits that would come from improving the law.
