To the Editor:

A comment on Common Core State Standards critic Susan Ohanian's well-known 2006 quote about the old education law, the No Child Left Behind Act:

When Congress passes

No Child Left Unfed,

No Child Without Health Care, and

No Child Left Homeless,

Then we can talk seriously about

No Child Left Behind.

I offer an updated version as a comment on the new education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act:

When Congress passes

Every Student Is Well-Fed,

Every Student Has Proper Health Care, and

No Student Is Left Homeless,

Then we can talk seriously about

"Every Student Succeeds."
