A longtime member of the Albemarle School Board wants the U.S. Senate to re-authorize a law that deals with public education. The last time Congress approved a new Elementary and Secondary Education Act was 2002. Steve Koleszar (pictured) says he’s contacted Virginia’s two U.S. Senators about getting a new law. The House of Representatives approved what it calls “the Student Success Act” last July. Supporters say it restores more state and local control of public schools.
