Accountability Under NCLB: Interim Report

About 13 percent of schools overall and 18 percent of Title I schools were identified for improvement under the No Child Left Behind Act during the 2004-05 school year, says a report by a team of researchers from the RAND Corp., a Santa Monica, Calif.-based nonprofit think tank and the American Institutes for Research, a Washington-based behavioral and social sciences research organization.

Based on data from two federally funded studies, the report found that the number of Title I schools identified for improvement increased from 6,212 in 2003-04 to 9,333 the following school year. Over one-third of high-poverty and high-minority schools were found to be in need of improvement for the 2004-05 school year, compared with 4 percent of low-poverty schools.
