Department of Education http://wyso.org en Ohio’s No Child Left Behind Waiver Approved http://wyso.org/post/ohio-s-no-child-left-behind-waiver-approved <p>Ohio is one of eight states that no longer have to meet all the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind Act, but with a caveat.<br /><br /> More than a decade ago the No Child Left Behind Act ushered in a new era of education reform, including the requirement that all students be proficient in reading and math by 2014.&nbsp; Many states have fought for repeal, calling the law unrealistic.&nbsp; It remains in place but the Obama Administration has given states a way around some of the requirements, allowing states to apply for waivers.</p> Wed, 30 May 2012 12:05:00 +0000 Ida Lieszkovszky (StateImpact: Ohio) 16824 at http://wyso.org
