The Growth Model

We have all talked about NCLB this semester, but this article shows maybe some changes to help educators out.  One of the many complaints by teachers about the law is it tracks the progress of groups and not individuals, which the title of the law implies leaving no individual behind.  To avoid this, states can present a growth model to the national government on how they plan on tracking test scores among individuals.  They still have to get students on the track towards the 2014 goal of proficiency, but at least get to decide how to track scores.  The law itself is not seeing any changes yet to its structure, but I think it is just a matter of time before they make some major changes.
