"A Good Start on Schools"

Encouraging.

The Every Child Achieves Act would help to get the federal government out of the education-micromanagement business. Our ideal policy would go even further in this direction, but it’s a good start: The federal government would maintain performance standards, but offer more ways for schools to meet them than the current regimen of tests. It would also eliminate the rigid “adequate yearly progress” requirement, which haunts teachers and administrators, along with the “highly qualified teacher” provision, which keeps competent teachers out of the classroom for a lack of proper licensing. Perhaps most important, while states will still be required to identify low-performing schools, how they get those schools up to snuff will be up to them and the school districts, not to Washington.
