NCLB Title I Accountability and Charter School Authorizer Obligations. No Child Left Behind Policy Brief
Haft, William; Cass, Rebecca
National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NJ1)
On January 8, 2002, President Bush signed into law the re-authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, commonly known as No Child Left Behind ("NCLB"). This law dramatically affects how all schools, including charter schools, are held accountable for the academic performance of their students. Since the passage of NCLB, there has been much speculation in the charter school community generally, and among authorizers specifically, on how the provisions of this federal law will affect how authorizers hold charter schools accountable for performance. This Policy Brief reports on and makes several recommendations on the obligations of charter school authorizers in relation to the implementation of NCLB Title I accountability. (Contains 7 endnotes.)
