An article in the March 14, 2001, issue of Education Week on the proposed use of National Assessment of Educational Progress (“Experts Preach Caution On Use of ‘Precious’ NAEP,”) results to verify states’ progress on their own tests incorrectly described President Bush’s position during the 2000 campaign on using state performance on naep as a direct trigger for federal financial rewards and penalties for states. His opponent, Vice President Al Gore, proposed using naep as a direct trigger for financial rewards; Mr. Bush proposed rewarding states that demonstrate progress on state assessments, as verified by NAEP.
An item in the People in the News column in the March 7 issue gave incorrect information about Jan A. Kendrick. Ms. Kendrick has resigned from her posts as the superintendent of the Anderson, Ind., school system and the president of the Indiana Urban Schools Association. She is working full time as the president of the Mayerson Academy for Human Resource Development in Cincinnati.
