Democrats in the Senate Stepping Up for Accountability

Despite a disappointing (though unsurprising) lack of engagement from the 2016 Democratic candidates, the Democrats in the Senate have stepped up on ESEA reauthorization and are defending accountability. The 74 writes:

“The only way we’re going to have the power to get this done is if all of us are willing to throw ourselves into it and say we will not pass a piece of major civil rights legislation that does not have accountability,” said Sen. Elizabeth Warren, one of the sponsors of a failed amendment that aimed to get stricter accountability standards in the Senate’s bill. “We owe this to our children. We owe this to our future.”
