Gov. Scott Walker wants new system to replace No Child Left Behind.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he wants the state's largest teachers union to be part of an effort to create a new state accountability system to replace the federal No Child Left Behind.

The head of the Wisconsin Education Association Council said Friday that the effort may be worthwhile, but teachers don't trust Walker given his proposal taking away nearly all their collective bargaining rights.

Walker says having WEAC's participation "doesn't mean they have to support everything I have in the past or will be in the future." But he says the effort to create the new accountability system will be better off the more inclusive it is.

Walker is leading the effort along with state superintendent Tony Evers, who also opposed his union plan.
