Most teachers support the idea of standards-based accountability as outlined by the federal No Child Left Behind Act, but they feel challenged by the insufficient alignment of local curricula with state standards, concludes a study by the Santa Monica, Calif.-based RAND Corp.

Teachers also reported reduced morale and a narrower teaching focus as a result of standards-based accountability. RAND surveyed superintendents, principals, and teachers in three states—California, Georgia, and Pennsylvania—to identify effective methods for implementing the NCLB law.

“Standards-Based Accountability Under No Child Left Behind” is available from RAND Corp.
