States Complain About NCLB

By Alexander Russo — May 10, 2007 1 min read

States say that they don’t have the capacity to implement the school turnaround provisions of NCLB, according to a new national report based on surveys and interviews with state ed officials (link here). There’s some news coverage here: Federal education mandates faulted.

As in the past with this series, I appreciate the information and respect the source, but wish that it didn’t rely so much on self-reported data. What do districts, federal officials, and outside observers say about state performance in terms of implementing NCLB?
