NCLB Plan Includes Vouchers

In an article in the February issue of School Board News

U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spell­ings said the Bush administration will seek to incorporate private school vouchers and expanded charter school options into the No Child Left Behind Act.

Many of the administration’s proposals for the reauthorization of NCLB revolve around the approximately 1,800 schools that have failed to improve student achievement to acceptable levels over the last six years and are in “restructuring” status.

Also included is a plan for charter schools, grants, and promise scholarships.

More information can be found in an article in todays Washington Post.
