State Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal says the state will seek a waiver from the federal education law known as No Child Left Behind.

Huppenthal says that's because it appears that Congress won't revise the Elementary and Secondary Education Act this year.

He says that would leave in place a federal accountability structure that is both burdensome and lacking in scientific foundation.

Huppenthal says obtaining a waiver would allow Arizona to use good science to drive its education policy.

Huppenthal discussed the issue during an address to a joint meeting of House and Senate education committees Monday.
