Forum on Educational Accountability


March 2007

The current version of the federal Elementary and Secondary
Education Act (ESEA), called "No Child Left Behind"
(NCLB), needs fundamental change. The Forum on Educational Accountability
(FEA) has submitted legislative language based on the Joint Organizational
Statement on NCLB to the U.S. House and Senate Education Committees
that would remake the law into an effective tool for school improvement.
