But a White House veto threat looms for the bill, which would slash the federal government’s role in education.

It's about time this 2nd District Rep finally did something as Education Chair...been in the job long enough. Hasn't done much for recently graduating students or lowering of student loan interest rates. Sides with those with money. Doesn't want Obama care because he's got options to use his military tri-care benefit and House insurance coverage. Recent job fair in Eagan offered very few career positions. Need more be said....time for a change!
Guarantee the teachers unions will fight any/all proposals that dont line the pockets or reduce the workload of their members. Because its all about the children.
..."“The House of Representatives will not stand by and allow the Education Department to micromanage our classrooms and defend the failed status quo,” said Kline, chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee."...
That's right. Kline wants the micromanaging to be done state and local government politicians.
I'll be the first to admit that I do not know exactly what is in the bill that was passed. While it is nice to see that Rep. Kline is active on an issue, my real concern is that it seems that any bill that comes out of the House of Representatives on a pure "party line vote" is fundamentally flawed due to the motivation of politics above substance. That has been the pattern in the House for several years and represents all that is wrong with the way government is currently (not) operating. In the meantime, we are wasting money, time and allowing the equivalent of an operational cancer to spread across the educational landscape. All this happens because of politicians that have been bought and paid for by lobbyists, PAC's and parties. Both sides should be ashamed, but apparently they are too busy pandering to feel anything. Sorry kids, we (in congress) have more important things to (not) do.
