Beyond NCLB Hype: A New Agenda for the New Administration
- Educational Equity Symposium
On Monday and Tuesday, November 17-18, 2008, the Campaign for Educational Equity at Teachers College, Columbia University, will host its fourth annual Equity Symposium, "Comprehensive Educational Equity: Overcoming the Socioeconomic Barriers to School Success."
Equity in Education Forum Series, Spring 2008
Teachers College, Columbia University
Featuring the work of Michael Rebell and Jessica Wolff who in their recently published book, Moving Every Child Ahead, argue that the important goals of the federal No Child Left Behind Act have been undermined by the impossible demand that 100% of America’s children reach required proficiency levels by 2014. Instead, they believe NCLB should be revised to require serious efforts to give all children a “meaningful educational opportunity” and offer Congress clear recommendations on how to do so.
