AED222 Special Education and the Principles of NCLB

Strong Accountability for Results: The pros of this principle are that is compares students performances data to the standards and not to the students around them. It also allows parents to know how their child is doing in school. Also it allows policymakers and the school leaders to access how individual schools and school districts are performing to state standards. The cons of this principle are that it only allows 1% of all students with disabilities to be exempt from the usual assessments. This 1% is only about 9% of those students with disabilities which also includes the students with the most severe disabilities. The U.S. Department of Education allows an extra 2% of those identified as being in need of modified standards and assessments.
