A survey of education insiders regarding the future of the federal No Child Left Behind Act found that nearly all of them believed the law, up for renewal this year, would not be reauthorized until after the 2008 presidential election.

The research brief from the Washington-based Thomas B. Fordham Foundation surveyed 12 education experts in December on the law and asked them what to expect when it comes to reauthorization. Most said that a major overhaul of the law is unlikely, but that the changes to come have been foreshadowed by the U.S. Department of Education. For example, the department has a pilot program that allows low-performing schools in some districts to offer tutoring services before permitting their students to transfer to higher-performing schools, a reversal of the usual order of remedies under the law.
