Pass/Fail: Meeting the Challenges of the State ABC and Federal 'No Child Left Behind' Accountability Programs

Record #:
During the 2002-03 school year, all North Carolina public schools were evaluated for the first time under the state's ABC's of Public Education of 1996 and the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. An interesting result was that almost half of the schools that met state standards failed to meet federal standards. Stallings discusses whether or not the state's assessment program meets the requirements of the new federal legislation; the first year assessment results and if the state's results met federal expectations; what sanctions will the state face because of the results; and will North Carolina be able to meet the new standards in the time the federal act allots.
