A bill would have asked the federal government to substitute the Standards of Learning test as a measure of educational progress, but was voted down in the House Education Committee. That after a number of school superintendents testified the program needs to be fixed. They say it's under- funded and punishes schools that try to make sure students aren't left behind. Committee Chairman Jim Dillard supported the bill. He says "No Child Left Behind" gives the federal government too much control over public education in Virginia.
