S.1094, the “Strengthening America’s Schools Act of 2013,” is a 1200 page regulatory tsunami on local school systems.
All local control of your child’s education will be washed away if this bill passes.
Why is it so bad?
S.1094 puts approximately 150 new reporting requirements on states relating to:
>>> Teacher evaluations
>>> Learning goals
>>> Curriculum standards
>>> Standardized testing
>>> Annual reporting
What’s worse is that local school systems are required to implement all of these new federal mandates and standards in a very short time frame.
This means that teachers and local school administrators will be spending more time trying to comply with silly federal mandates and less time on actually teaching your child.
The Education Freedom Committee opposes S.1094 because we fundamentally reject the idea that the federal government should have any role in the education of our children.
The bill has already been rubber stamped in the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee and could be voted on in the U.S. Senate at any time.
