Hi all,

I am running for Kansas House of Representatives, 24th district (Northeast Johnson County). As part of my campaign, I will be pushing for Kansas to opt out of the Federal No Child Left Behind program.

I personally feel this is a violation of our rights under the 10th amendment, and constitutes and unfunded and unrealistic mandate by our Federal Government that is unnecessarily stressing our teachers.

I need any thoughts, complaints, observations, ideas, etc. that any of you may have regarding this. Based on what I've heard from teachers so far, I gather this is an unpopular program, but I need as much feedback as I can get pro or con.

Thanks,

Jason Peck
