Are NCLB changes coming down the road?

The Washington Post has reported that Margaret Spellings may be open to changes in the federal reg's that outline how state's report progress on NCLB.

Evidently the feds may be open to a more student-centered approach by looking at individual student growth.

Hmmmm - a step in the right direction. But getting 100% of all students to attain proficiency by 2013-2014 is still a noble goal and an unscientific and unrealistic law.
