Education: States should do more to reach students
Education Dept.: States seeking waivers should do more to make sure no student is left behind
By The Associated Press

MIAMI (AP) ' The Education Department says most states seeking a No Child Left Behind waiver did not do enough in their applications to ensure schools would be held accountable for the performance of all students.

The Obama administration praised the states for their high academic standards. But nearly every waiver application was criticized for being loose about setting high goals and, when necessary, interventions for all student groups ' including minorities, the disabled and low-income ' or for failing to create sufficient incentives to close the achievement gap.

The concerns were outlined in letters sent in December by the administration and obtained by The Associated Press. Since then, state and federal officials have been working to address the concerns.
