WASHINGTON D.C. – Senator Angus King plans to introduce legislation that he says will ease Maine’s compliance with federal standardized testing requirements.
King will make the announcement during a roundtable discussion tomorrow at the Presumpscot Elementary School.
Senator King will tour several Southern Maine schools where he will meet with students, teachers and administrators.
He plans to discuss the elementary and secondary education act – otherwise known as “No Child Left Behind.”
The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee plans to consider the re-authorization of No Child Left Behind this spring.
That will present an opportunity for King to promote greater flexibility options for Maien, as the state transitions to proficiency-based learning.
