Education Policy & Social Analysis

Jeff Henig quoted in The Washington Post, Dec. 9, 2015

President Obama signed sweeping education legislation that restores significant power back to states and local school districts, reversing more than a decade of increased federal control put in place by the No Child Left Behind bill.

TC's Jeffrey Henig, professor of political science and education, said it could take years for the bill's reforms to have a widespread effect on state and local school systems. "There will be changes in some places very early as some states test the limits as to what they can do differently," Henig told the Washington Post. "But I think it'll take us three, four, five years before we really have a sense of how this is rippling out throughout the system."
