Introduction Of No School Left Behind Act Of 2004 March 16, 2004
Frank Ballance, D-NC
"Mr. Speaker, earlier today in rural Edgecombe County in the community of Battleboro, we announced that we would file a bill tonight called ROLE Model Initiative, Respecting Our Leaders in Education. The event was held at Phillips Middle School in Battleboro where we had more than four dozen education professionals, parents, teachers and students representing rural North Carolina. This bill is being introduced so that we can have our local systems get funding, because we have mandated that they follow the IDEA Act and the No Child Left Behind Act and we have not provided the funds for these acts. One speaker today described these two acts, Individuals With Disabilities Education and No Child Left Behind, as trains on the same track headed toward one another, bound to collide. We want to have a moratorium so the States can opt out of the penalty phase of No Child Left Behind until we fund IDEA."
