Governor Kitzhaber Wants Your Feedback: Preparing Oregon’s NCLB Waiver Submission

Oregon is preparing to apply for a waiver from No Child Left Behind.  What does this mean?  It could mean more flexibility for schools and teachers and a greater focus on learning rather than testing.  That’s the potential here.  In order to find out what Oregonians want for their students and teachers and schools, Kitzhaber is surveying the public and will use the input in the preparation of documents required for submission of the NCLB Waiver application.  

I gave this link in a previous blog post but thought some of you might be even more interested with the knowledge that this input will be used to apply for the NCLB waiver.  With so much discontent surrounding NCLB, take a little time to give your feedback…click here to submit your input!

  1. That’s interesting, i wonder if the public’s answer will really have much say into what they plan to do. I clicked on the link, but the site was closed, so i’m not sure as to what they would be asking for. Do they want input as to whether or not they want to do a waiver, or is it that they want input as to what the program they plan to replace no child left behind should look like. If the later is the case that sounds amazing. Let me know if you have anymore information.
