Education committee staff back plan to include history in No Child Left Behind





States would be able to develop assessments of progress, and tests would go beyond English and math to include history and science, according to a proposal on the House education committee’s Web site [concerning a draft bill to amend the No Child Left Behind act]. Schools would be judged partly on graduation rates and college enrollment. “This draft is a work in progress, subject to change over the coming weeks,” said Representatives George Miller, Democrat of California and chairman of the committee, and Howard P. McKeon of California, the panel’s ranking Republican. The draft has not been endorsed by the full committee.
