ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the observations of the U.S. advocates, who addressed a private panel studying the education law and how to improve it. According to the panelists, the No Child Left Behind Act of the country imposes the wrong kind of testing on schools and educators. The discussion centered on assessments and data systems with a group that included Connecticut's education commissioner and its state attorney general. Several panel members said that the type of testing being conducted under the federal law must be reevaluated. Several members of the panel also said the U.S. Department of Education should look more closely at testing that tracks individual student improvement over time.
