Group holds forum on No Child Left Behind


Ohanian Comment: Hmmm. What's going on here?


The Greater Educational Opportunities Foundation works for vouchers and is heavily financed by the Bradley foundation and the Walton family. Go to
Media Transparency
and take a look.


Area parents can air their views on the No Child Left Behind Act and its effect on education tonight at a meeting sponsored by an Indiana parent advocacy group.


The Greater Educational Opportunities Foundationís Parent Information and Resource Center wants to compile community input from across the state on strengths and weaknesses of the federal law that calls for all children to master English and math by 2014.


Stephen M. Jackson, director of the Resource Center, said at least 20 people will attend. It is the fourth meeting the group has conducted in Indiana. Eventually, foundation officials will distribute a report of community concerns. The nonprofit foundation supports school choice. Its resource center works to boost parental involvement in schools.
