Department Raps States on Testing
Olson, Lynn
Education Week, v25 n42 p1, 36-37 Jul 2006
The U.S. Department of Education has notified 10 states that it intends to withhold a portion of their state administrative funds under the Title I program for failing to comply fully with the testing provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act by the end of the 2005-06 school year. Those funds would instead be diverted directly to school districts. In addition, this article states, that twenty-five additional states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico also could have a portion of their aid withheld if they fail to meet timelines for having their testing systems fully in compliance with the federal law by the end of the coming school year. Furthermore, this article discusses the letter written by Assistant Secretary of Education Henry L. Johnson to chief state school officers regarding the issue on the testing system.
