Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna will testify before the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee hearing on the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Tuesday, November 8, 2011.
The Senate HELP Committee is currently considering legislation to reauthorize ESEA, more commonly referred to as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. As Idaho’s State Superintendent and the President Elect of the Council of Chief State School Officers, Superintendent Luna has played a critical role in encouraging Congress to reauthorize No Child Left Behind and in shaping reauthorization legislation.
The hearing, titled Beyond NCLB: Views on the Elementary and Secondary Education Reauthorization Act, will be held at 10 a.m. ET (8 a.m. MT) on Tuesday, November 8, 2011 in the Dirksen Senate Office Building.
