The Obama Administration has provided a first look at the revisions that it is proposing for No Child Left Behind. According to a report in the New York Times, the proposed revisions would replace the Act’s requirement that schools and districts make “adequate yearly progress” with a new measure that judges schools’ progress in preparing students for college and/or a career. The Administration also appears to be proposing to tie a portion of Title I funding to this measure of progress. In addition, there are indications that the Administration will propose a requirement that states allow links between student test scores and teacher evaluations as a pre-requisite for the receipt of federal funding. The Administration’s proposals have also been reported on by Education Week. Click here to view the article.
