Building on Results: A Blueprint for Strengthening the No Child Left Behind Act

Description

"U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings has released "Building on Results: A Blueprint for Strengthening the No Child Left Behind Act." On the heels of the President's call in his State of the Union Address for Congress to reauthorize the No Child Left Behind Act, which turned five this month, Spellings said, "There is no better time than this year to get the job done." Building On Results is designed to provide additional tools to schools and educators to help American students read and do math at grade level by 2014. It would strengthen efforts to close the achievement gap by giving states more flexibility to measure and increase student progress; encourage rigorous coursework, particularly in math and science, in our nation's high schools; and provide new options and choices for families whose children remain in underperforming schools."
