After No Child Left Behind, will shift to states help or hurt students?
from The Christian Science Monitor
Across Minnesota, the number of native American kids heading to college is on the rise. The reading and math scores of black students are catching up to those of whites. Low-income students, kids whose native language isn't English, and kids with disabilities are meeting the higher expectations teachers have been setting for them. The state — a high performer by many education measures — still faces many academic gaps between groups of students. But it is well on its way toward a goal it set in 2012 to cut those disparities in half by 2017.
