Boehner’s Departure Complicates Push To Reauthorize ESEA.

The Washington Post (9/25, Layton) reports that House Speaker John Boehner’s abrupt announcement that he is resigning “muddied” the politics surrounding Congress’ efforts to reauthorize ESEA, noting that his departure “complicates the fragile effort between House and Senate negotiators, who have been working on a compromise to replace the 2002 No Child Left Behind Act.” Members of the House Freedom Caucus, who “opposed the House GOP bill because they don’t want any federal role in public education at all,” may be emboldened by Boehner’s departure.
