State Department of Education in town to discuss No Child Left Behind

January 4, 2012 

The S.C. Department of Education is in town today to talk about their plan to get a waiver from No Child Left Behind. The plan hinges on doing away with the "all or nothing" components of No Child Left Behind. Progress toward annual objectives will be measured, and schools will be given letter grades based on that progress rather than being considered failing for not meeting annual yearly progress.
