Mississippi Sen. Cochran to help rewrite No Child Left Behind education law

Local school leaders hope the involvement of Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., on a committee that will help rewrite the federal No Child Left Behind law means good things for Mississippi educators.

Cochran, the state’s senior senator, announced Friday he had agreed to continue serving on the Senate Rural Education Caucus, a bipartisan group that will promote the needs and interests of education in small and rural school districts in the 112th Congress.
