“The Unraveling of No Child Left Behind: How Negotiated Changes Transform the Law” is available from The Civil Rights Project at Harvard University.

Negotiations between the U.S. Department of Education and individual states are weakening the accountability standards of the No Child Left Behind Act, concludes a study by the Civil Rights Project at Harvard University.

The report says that Education Department officials have made compromises with states on NCLB implementation because of growing political opposition to the law and increases in the number of schools and districts identified as needing improvement. As a result, the report concludes, states are no longer subject to the same standards, which was the original intent of the 4-year-old law.
