No Relief For Washington Schools Under No Child Left Behind Law

Most schools in Washington state will be required to send letters to parents before school starts this fall, saying the schools are failing because not every child has passed state reading and math tests.

The U.S. Department of Education has notified Washington school officials that it has denied the state’s request to spare most schools the need to send those letters. Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn said Monday that he fully expected the denial when he sent the request about a month ago, but agreed to give it a try.
