Civil Rights Groups Wary on Waiver-Renewal Guidelines

Civil rights groups that have been waiting for years for federal officials to address the problem of inequitable distribution of effective teachers suffered a setback when U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan backtracked on plans to attach more requirements for states hoping to renew their No Child Left Behind Act waivers ... In an Oct. 22 letter to Mr. Duncan, civil rights groups—including the National Center for Learning Disabilities, in New York City, and the Alliance for Excellent Education, a Washington-based group that works on graduation-rate issues—urged the secretary to aggressively use his leverage from waiver renewals to ensure that states are helping the students most at risk of academic failure.
