Obama administration issues No Child Left Behind waiver renewal guidance
from The Huffington Post
The Obama administration is inviting states to apply to renew their waivers from the No Child Left Behind Act. And according to a guidance issued, these renewed waivers could last all the way through the 2018-2019 school year — locking down some of President Barack Obama's education policy changes well into the next presidency. The new guidelines don't radically change the criteria for escaping the law's strictures. According to an Education Department document, states will have to ensure that schools cannot receive top ratings for accountability if they are not closing "significant achievement or graduation rate gaps" between different groups of students.
