Education Officials to Discuss No Child Left Behind Waiver
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - Missouri education officials are planning to discuss their request to be excused from parts of the federal No Child Left Behind Law.
The federal government is allowing states to be exempted from some of the laws' requirements. The state Board of Education plans to discuss the state's proposed waiver application during their meeting Feb. 21.
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has posted its current proposal to its website. Officials expect at least one more draft to be developed before the state Board of Education meeting later this month.
