NCLB Services Seen Difficult to Monitor
Most states are struggling to monitor the impact of supplemental educational services—such as tutoring, remediation, and other interventions—that are available to students in schools identified for improvement under the No Child Left Behind Act, a survey says.
The survey, conducted last fall by the Washington-based Center on Education Policy, found that 38 states said they were unable to monitor "to a great extent" the effectiveness of supplemental-service providers. In most cases, the states reported they did not have the staff resources and federal funding necessary to monitor the impact of the services.
