Congressman Randy Neugebauer Says Student Success Act Is A Great Improvement Over No Child Left Behind [AUDIO]

On Tuesday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer talked with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the latest going on in Washington.

The Student Success Act recently passed in the House by a vote of 241 to 207. This new act will replaced the much maligned No Child Left Behind Act, which expires this year. Neugebauer said the new Student Success Act is a great improvement over No Child Left Behind in that it puts the decision-making and the power away from the federal government back into the school districts.

“When you have a very federalized education system, it assumes that every child is the same, which means that every classroom is the same, which would mean that every school is the same, which would mean that every school district is the same. Well, you and I and Laura know that’s not the case. So you have to let school districts determine what do our kids need and what’s best for our community instead of letting the federal government determine that.”

Neugebauer also gave his thoughts on the President’s decision to delay the mandatory implementation of Obamacare for employers. He said the goal now is to keep Obamacare from being implemented at all. He also discussed the latest developments with the Farm Bill and the PATH, or Protecting American Taxpayers and Homeowners Act.
