NEW YORK, NY --In a letter to the Members of Congress representing his 37th Senate District and New York’s U.S. Senators, Senator George Latimer (D - Westchester) urged a revamping of the standardized testing requirements of the “No Child Left Behind (NCLB)  Act.”

First adopted in 2002, NCLB created a substantial and rigid system of standardized testing. Although adopted by the Bush Administration, the current U.S. Department of Education has taken an inflexible stance, particularly in regard to children with special needs and English Language Learners (ELL).

The logo might be seen as in poor taste considering that Rice has been persona-non-grate in the NFL every since video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiance, now-wife Janay Rice and knocking her unconscious in an Atlantic City elevator.
