New NCLB waiver reports show more issues with struggling schools, new tests
from Education Week
The U.S. Department of Education released waiver monitoring reports for three more states that show continued struggles with low-performing schools and new tests aligned to the common core. Kansas is dinged because the interventions for its focus schools do not seem to line up with the reasons those schools were selected for this designation in the first place. (Focus schools are those with the largest achievement gaps in the state.) This is a common problem among many waiver states.
