Major Ruling on No Child Left Behind Act

In a significant development just as the No Child Left Behind Act is turning 6 years old this week, a federal appeals court has revived a major lawsuit challenging the federal education law as an unfunded mandate.

The opinion by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, in Cincinnati, is here.

Education Week reported in 2005 on a federal district judge dismissing the suit, which is backed by the National Education Association.

I'll have more on the 6th Circuit decision soon.
