We Are the 5%: Which Schools Would Be Held Accountable under a Proposed Revision of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act?
McEachin, Andrew; Polikoff, Morgan S.
Educational Researcher, v41 n7 p243-251 Oct 2012
This article uses data from California to analyze the results of the proposed accountability system in the Senate's Harkin-Enzi draft Elementary and Secondary Education Act reauthorization. The authors analyze existing statewide school-level data from California, applying the accountability criteria proposed in the draft law. Comparing the proposed system to the No Child Left Behind Act's Adequate Yearly Progress provisions, they draw conclusions about the stability of the proposed identification schemes and the types of schools likely to be identified. They conclude with several policy recommendations that could be easily incorporated into the law, based on their analysis and the existing literature. (Contains 3 notes and 5 tables.)
