The way to replace No Child Left Behind

Sent to US News, July 18

The way to replace No Child Left Behind is with a law that addresses the main cause of low school achievement: Poverty.  The rate of child poverty in the US is an astonishing 25%, the second highest of all economically advanced countries, and exceeds 95% in many of our urban and rural schools.
Let's protect children from the impact of poverty by insisting on a living wage that leaves No Child Left Unfed, No Child Without Adequate Health Care and No Child Without Easy Access to a Good Library.
