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!
