Republicans at the Minnesota Legislature generally seem to support Governor Dayton’s move to ask the Obama administration to exempt Minnesota from the federal No Child Left Behind law. Eden Prairie Senator David Hann says there’s a problem getting Washington to do what needs to be done in education. He says it’s better to have the legislature, school boards and parents making those decisions. Governor Dayton says rigid testing requirements in No Child Left Behind have harmed, not improved, students’ learning experiences. Hann says he wishes the governor would show similar amounts of skepticism about federal health care programs.
