The U.S. Department of Education made it easier for schools and districts to show adequate yearly progress under the No Child Left Behind Act by allowing adjustments and flexibility in states’ accountability plans in 2006, according to the Center on Education Policy.

A report by the Washington-based research and policy group suggests that more and more states are following changes that the department already allowed in other states’ plans, or are adopting the adjustments and flexibility in policy guidance handed down by U.S. Education Secretary Margaret Spellings in 2005. Many of the changes in states’ plans had to do with meeting the deadline for implementing tests that meet the requirements of the federal education law by the end of the 2005-06 school year, the report says.
