More Resources on NCLB and Students with Disabilities
The National Center for Learning Disabilities has released a comprehensive report on No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and its impact on students who receive special education in our nation's schools -- almost half of whom have learning disabilities (LD). The new report provides a compelling look at how several NCLB requirements have affected this important and often controversial student group. A companion study on State Test Accommodations Policies provides an overview of the variance and validity of these policies. Both reports provide recommendations for the reauthorization of NCLB, now underway in the U.S. Congress.Sandy, Illinois (alpy2@...)
