Duncan to Congress: Giving States Flexibility is Working | ED.gov Blog | Eleanore’s Ramblings….

Yes, this is a repost from another blog site, originally from the Department of Education blog site at http://ed.gov/blog.  This particular post caught my eye because it speaks to a more local level of control over appropriate educational programming, based on each state’s specific educational needs.  Through participation in the Common Core of Data (CCD) via the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES, at http://nces.ed.gov/ccd), the comparison of learned skills continues so that states monitor their students’ educational achievements against those of students in other states, but they do so differently than was originally proscribed by NCLB.  Unlike in NCLB which stressed a single test to measure progress across the nation, a program of how and what is taught and assessed is developed locally, by administrators and officials who know their population best.
