Public Dissatisfied over Key NCLB Provisions, Says New Report

The public is largely disenchanted with the way the federal No Child Law Behind Act measures student learning and teacher quality, and it would like greater input into the law's implementation, according to a report by the Public Education Network.

The report from PEN, a Washington-based advocacy group of individuals and more than 80 local education funds around the country, is based on a series of public forums conducted in 10 states from fall 2005 through this past January. The meetings, which were modeled on congressional hearings, were attended by about 250 people each and held primarily in cities with a large number of Title I schools, including New York City, Orlando, Fla., and Austin, Texas.
