Paige Backs NCLB, Urges Business to Get More Involved in Schools
Echoing a refrain from the administration he used to serve,
former U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige urged Calhoun County business leaders and future teachers to
“stay the course” with No Child Left Behind. Paige, speaking to students and faculty at Jacksonville State
University Thursday morning and in the keynote address that afternoon at the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce
Economic Forum, said the landmark federal education law passed in 2001 is key in the United States’ ability to
compete in a global economy. See story at The Anniston Star's website: www.annistonstar.com.
