Senator Tim Kaine made a floor speech today (12/9) in favor of the Every Student Succeeds Act, the bill written to replace No Child Left Behind.
The bill includes several provisions authored by Kaine, including measures to increase career and technical education programs as well as the authorization of federal funds to teach high school students about sexual assault prevention, dating violence and how to get help. Kaine says people are most at risk of sexual assault from age 16-24.
The House approved the bill last week. The Senate is expected to vote tomorrow (12/10).
