Sheekey, Arthur; Cymrot, Donald J.; Fauntleroy, Corbin
CNA Corporation
This report provides an overview and synthesis of the ten Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) reports published concurrently. The RACs were created by the U.S. Secretary of Education to conduct a regional educational needs assessment in advance of the competition for a new set of comprehensive assistance centers and regional education laboratories. The RACs consisted of education stakeholders from state and local education agencies, practitioners, parents, researchers and business leaders. Each of the ten regional committees operated independently but followed a similar framework. The RAC members first identified major challenges to the successful implementation of the "No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act" and then considered various types of technical assistance that might mitigate the challenges. Appended are: (1) Committee membership by region and stakeholder role; (2) Technology support for the Regional Advisory Committees; (3) National organizations contacted; (4) Number of registered public users of website by stakeholder role; and (5) Additional regional profile information. A glossary is also included. (Contains 12 tables.)
