Washington – States can now request to ignore parts of the No Child Left Behind law for a few more years. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the Education Department stated last week that states had through the spring of 2016 to make their requests.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan recently regarded the sweeping education law as being outdated and an inhibitor of reform and innovation by states and school districts stating, “The smartest way to fix that is through a reauthorized ESEA law, but Congress has not agreed on a responsible bill.”

The Education Department announced in 2011 that states could file a petition for waivers from some of the law’s requirements, which some deem are overly ambitious.

Duncan is further quoted by the AP as stating, “I look forward to a day when we can announce a new ESEA law that supports every state.”
