WASHINGTON (AP) — An outline of a plan by two senators to rework the education law known as No Child Left Behind would put more control over schools in the hands of states.

Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa released the outline on Tuesday. Harkin and Republican Sen. Mike Enzi of Wyoming have been working behind closed doors for months to rewrite the landmark education law signed in 2002 by President George W. Bush.

President Barack Obama has complained that Congress has failed to rework the law. Obama says that states will be granted waivers around many of the law’s unpopular proficiency requirements if the states meet certain conditions.

Harkin chairs the Senate committee with jurisdiction over education. The draft reveals a plan with requirements pretty similar to Obama’s.
