What have we learned from No Child Left Behind--and how can we improve it?
John E. Chubb, writing on behalf of the Koret Task Force on K-12 Education, presents a convincing case that, despite the controversy it has ignited, the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law is making a positive difference and should be renewed. He outlines ten specific lessons and recommendations that identify the strengths and weaknesses of NCLB and offers suggestions for improving the law, building on its current foundation. Chubb tells how to strengthen that foundation byRaising academic standardsFocusing the measurement of achievement on growthDifferentiating accountability to match consequences with needsBroadening the tested curriculum to include science and social studiesBuilding information systems to facilitate more intelligent accountabilityEncouraging teachers to be supported and rewarded based on their actual effectivenessOffering effective choiceOffering effective tutoringClosing schools that fail to improve
These improved strategies, says the author, should increase and accelerate the already positive effect of NCLB on achievement. Thus, policymakers should aim to reform and reauthorize NCLB as fast as possible.
