Preliminary Findings about Waivers: CEP Survey of State Education Agency Officials, October-November 2011
Rentner, Diane Stark; Kober, Nancy
Center on Education Policy
In the fall of 2011, the Center on Education Policy conducted a survey of state education officials to learn more about the fiscal condition of the states, their efforts to meet the assurances under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and the progress of states that have adopted the Common Core State Standards in transitioning to the new standards. Included in this survey were a few questions about U.S. Secretary of Education Duncan's new flexibility in the form of waivers that was announced in late September 2011. A total of 36 states and the District of Columbia participated in the survey. This paper presents the results from the questions about these waivers.
