ABSTRACT
The article discusses the reauthorization of the U.S. No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) with which Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings and Representative George Miller have a disagreement. Spellings is concerned that there are too many loopholes in the proposed bills' educational accountability proposals. Miller's proposal is that other indicators besides standardized test scores would be used to measure adequate yearly progress (AYP).
