Providing Greater Opportunities for Deeper Learning in NCLB Waivers. Policy Brief
Alliance for Excellent Education
The eleven state applications approved by the federal government for waivers under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act vary in the degree to which "deeper learning" skills are reflected in the standards, accountability systems, professional development, and teacher evaluations, according to a new policy brief written by the Alliance for Excellent Education. The brief argues that deeper learning provides students with the deep content knowledge they need to succeed after high school and the skills that today's jobs demand. To ensure that deeper learning competencies are better reflected in state plans, the brief offers recommendations to policymakers. (Contains 2 endnotes.)
