U.S. Sen. Patty Murray's reaction to Washington's loss of No Child Left Behind waiver

Tacoma News TribuneApril 24, 2014 

U.S. Sen. Patty Murray




“I’m deeply disappointed by the loss of this waiver and concerned about the impact it will have on students, teachers, and school districts across our state.   


“What’s most important now is that we all do our part to rectify this situation. From the Congressional viewpoint, that means working to update the outdated No Child Left Behind law in a way that works for our state, supports our teachers, and meets the needs of students today. I have made clear time and again that I will work with anyone who is willing to reauthorize ESEA, but to date, making progress on updating this law has been an unnecessarily partisan fight.


“We must come together at all levels of government in order to put students first.”
