WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - U.S. Congressman Todd Rokita (R-4, Ind.) expects a vote this week on his bill to replace the No Child Left Behind education bill.
That bill hasn't been re-authorized for six years.
Rokita says his bill, called the Student Success Act, returns control of education to states.
"It's not that one size fits all, but it's saying yes, you have to be accountable to your voters, your taxpayers and especially your children and parents, but we're going to let you decide what that success looks like and how you're going to measure it," Rokita said.
Rokita says the bill is expected to be voted on Friday.
