Federal role in education

Federal Role in Education

  • Bill of Rights (10th Amendment)

  • ESEA – Title I (1965, IASA 1994, NCLB 2001)


Nclb rationale

NCLB Rationale

  • Close achievement gaps between students of different economic, racial, ethnic backgrounds

  • Students should learn from highly qualified teachers

  • All students should graduate from high school and achieve high standards

  • Schools should be safe and drug free


Nclb principles

NCLB Principles

  • Accountability

    • Measure yearly progress of all students

    • State-created standards

    • Adequate yearly progress (AYP)

    • Highly Qualified Teachers

  • Research-based instruction

    • “scientifically-based” research

  • Local control and flexibility

    • Can use 50% of fed $ to other programs

  • Parental options

    • Parents may transfer students to other schools


Ayp basics

AYP Basics

  • Criteria: Math and reading assessment, test participation rate and other (attendance/graduation rate)

  • Baseline was set by each state in 2001, with 12 years to achieve goal

    • Test Scores: 40% (2003) – 100% (2014)

    • Participation: 95%

    • Graduation Rate: 65% (2003) – 85% (2014)

  • All subgroups (larger that 45 students) must meet AYP or a subgroup may increase by 10% (Safe Harbor)

  • Example; Illinois AYP Information; AYP Awards


Ayp success and failure

AYP Success and Failure

  • Success is “rewarded”

  • Failure:

    • Published

    • Improvement plan

    • Professional development

  • 2 years of failure: (Academic Early Warning)

    • Students can transfer within the district

  • 3 years of failure: (Academic Early Warning 1)

    • All of the above

    • Supplemental education

  • 4 years or more: (Academic Watch 1, 2, 3+)

    • Restructuring, replace staff, turn over operation to the state (5 years)

  • Phase 2: 10 states awarded ($3.4 billion)

  • Illinois was a finalist in both phases

  • “Phase 3”: 7 state were awarded funds

    • Illinois will receive $43 million.


Race to the top reform areas

Race to the Top – Reform Areas

  • Adopting standards and assessments that prepare students to succeed in college and the workplace and to compete in the global economy;

  • Building data systems that measure student growth and success, and inform teachers and principals about how they can improve instruction;

  • Recruiting, developing, rewarding, and retaining effective teachers and principals, especially where they are needed most; and
