From No Child Left Behind to Every Child a Graduate
Alliance for Excellent Education
America's secondary schools are failing far too many of their students. Policymakers and members of the education community generally agree that the problems in America's high schools have reached crisis proportions in recent years. Transforming schools and educating all students well requires thoughtful, coordinated, systemic change. To ensure that all children graduate with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in the twenty-first century, decisionmakers must be guided by a core group of principles that are critical to effective policy change. The Alliance for Excellent Education is a national policy and advocacy organization with the mission of promoting high school transformation to make it possible for every child to graduate prepared for postsecondary education and success in life. In this report, the Alliance calls on policymakers, officials, educators, and other stakeholders to put appropriate federal policies--which support and/or encourage good practice at every level--into place and to coordinate and align them across local, state, and federal levels. Only then can a comprehensive national solution to the crisis in America's high schools be achieved. Only then can the nation be assured that its students are receiving the excellent education they deserve and society demands. Only then can the nation move from the idea of "no child left behind" to the reality of "every child a graduate." (Contains 6 footnotes and 99 endnotes.)
