Getting out of NCLB

Add North Dakota to the list of states trying to get out of NCLB.

A number of North Dakota schools are unhappy about a federal law called "No Child Left Behind.''

It includes a number of teacher training and student performance requirements.

Bismarck Representative Margaret Sitte has introduced a bill that would allow schools to get out of following the federal law.

Sitte says the move would mean the school district would lose federal money. But she says it would also gain more local control.

Superintendent of Public Instruction Wayne Sanstead says there would be a number of consequences for schools that dropped out of ``No Child Left Behind.''

Sanstead says they'd lose federal aid to help poor and disadvantaged students.
