The U.S. House of Representatives passes the "Student Success Act".
It's a GOP bill to replace the No Child Left Behind Act. The measure passed on a mainly party-line vote.
It reduces federal involvement in education, giving states and local school districts more authority on how to improve their systems.
Republicans say Washington has no business deciding how local school systems are run.
Alabama district 2 Representative Martha Roby agrees.
"I certainly want the highest standards in Alabama's education, but I believe that people in Alabama, the parents and teachers and administrators, are in the best place and position to make those decisions and not Washington bureaucrats who've never visited our state."
The White House has threatened to veto the bill saying it would represent a significant step backwards in preparing kids for the future.
