More Information on the No Child Left Behind Waiver


We hope the post yesterday provided some context and understanding for the NCLB waiver. We want to offer you some more tools and an extended analysis of what the waiver will mean to our state and the other nine states affected by the decision.

For background information please review the Tennessee Department of Education's ESEA Waiver Application and Overview available here in a one-sheet overview and then in its entirety here.

We highly recommend reading The Education Trust's article titled, "No Child Left Behind Waivers; A First Look" for a larger multi-state perspective.

Most of all, we welcome your questions, posted here on our blog or emailed to us at
