US Department of Education
This paper offers tips on how states may receive ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) flexibility. To receive flexibility through waivers of NCLB (No Child Left Behind) requirements, a state must develop a rigorous and comprehensive plan addressing the three critical areas that are designed to improve educational outcomes for all students, close achievement gaps and increase equity, and improve the quality of instruction. States must consult a diverse group of stakeholders in developing their plans.
