Advocates: Uphold grad. rate accountability under NCLB waivers

Some disability advocacy groups are joining forces with others concerned about whether states will continue to be held accountable for students graduating from high school now that so many states have been granted No Child Left Behind waivers ... When reviewing some states waiver applications—34 states plus the District of Columbia have been granted waivers to date—the Alliance for Excellent Education found that several of those states with approved waivers inflate grad rates by combining calculations of the graduation rate that include GEDs with the four-year adjusted cohort rate, use alternative diplomas in their measure of high school completion, omit graduation rate accountability for student subgroups, and use extended-year graduation rates.
