No Child Left Behind Rewrite Progress

Updated: Tuesday, July 16 2013, 07:50 PM CDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Republican rewrite of the No Child Left Behind education law seems to be losing momentum.
Conservatives in the party don't think the bill does enough to reduce Washington's influence in education. Meanwhile, moderates warily eye proposals that would expand private-school vouchers.
The sweeping education law's update is the latest example of fractured Republicans in the House, where the party has a majority but often stumbles over internal disagreements.
Majority Leader Eric Cantor on Tuesday visited a Washington public charter school and pledged his support for such programs that compete with traditional public schools for students and dollars.
But the Virginia Republican wouldn't say when the revised No Child Left Behind law would come to a vote from all his members.
