Reactions Start Coming In

Now that the Labor Day weekend is over, get ready to hear from education groups about where they stand on the House committee’s NCLB draft.

Next in line at this blog is the Education Industry Association. In a statement released last week, Executive Director Steven Pines says says that thousands of students would lose their eligibility for tutoring and other services under the draft.

EIA doesn’t like the two-tiered accountability system. Only students in high-priority schools would have access to tutoring. That would deny such help to students in priority schools (i.e. those schools that miss AYP in a subgroup or two).

EIA also objects to allowing schools to use Title I money for after-school and other so-called extended learning opportunities. Such programs are unproven, and tutoring programs are successful, EIA says.

I’m guessing I’ll be writing several entries like this one this week.

A version of this news article first appeared in the NCLB: Act II blog.
