As a former teacher, I am committed to providing our nation's children with the best possible education.  While I believe in the original goals of the NCLB, I also believe that a 'one size fits all' approach to student achievement is not possible.  My bill will establish an improved framework for accountability that fairly and accurately assesses student, school, and district performance.  As a result, states and local school districts will be able to better use their resources to bring about meaningful and measurable results for our country's children.
