A Report to the U.S. Department of Education on Educational Challenges and Technical Assistance Needs for the Western Region
This report addresses the challenges and needs of the Western Region around No Child Left Behind (NCLB) implementation. It is imperative to note that the Western Region has more Title I and English Language Learners (ELL) students than any other region in the nation. This report will be submitted to the US Department of Education in developing a Request For Proposal (RFP) for technical assistance centers in the United States. In creating this report, RAC members were restricted by the US Department of Education from suggesting needed alterations in the NCLB law itself or from suggesting needs for additional funding through the law. The consensus of this RAC is that current funding levels will severely limit the ability of centers to address the identified needs under NCLB law in this region. It is essential that the services that are provided are cost-effective. Appended are: (1) California enrollment statistics; and (2) Biographic information about members of the Western Regional Advisory Committee. A glossary is also included. (Contains 17 tables and 2 figures.] [Prepared by the Western Regional Advisory Committee.]
