Ahead of the Curve: Emerging Policy Issues
NCREL introduces Ahead of the Curve: Emerging Policy Issues, a valuable online resource to help education leaders, policymakers, and educators at all levels respond to and understand the shifting world of education policy. As new education policy topics surface, this site will provide overviews of the issues, commentary by key stakeholders and experts, and reviews of how states in the NCREL region are addressing these issues.
The first installment of Ahead of the Curve provides information on the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 2001: No Child Left Behind (NCLB). It presents key aspects of this new legislation and implications for states.
