GOP bill is improvement, but it still leaves federal government involved in education as Freedomworks explains:

House/Education: On Friday, the House may vote on H.R. 5, the Student Success Act. Sponsored by Rep. John Kline (R-MN), this bill would substantially reform the No Child Left Behind and other educations standards. One particular section of the bill does deserve special praise – section 5521 forbids the federal government from using education funding to coerce states to adopt federal standards, such as Common Core. Unfortunately, the rest of the bill specifically fails to provide for school choice, choosing to tinker with federal standards instead of putting control back into the hands of states, localities, and the parents.
