Document Number: 4918Conference Papers: Implementing the No Child Left Behind Act - Panelists at an April 2003 conference on implementing No Child Left Behind (NCLB) were each invited to submit a short document providing recommendations to policymakers on state and local capacity to implement the accountability, technical assistance, school choice and teacher quality provisions of the act. The present compendium of papers includes these, as well as Marc Tucker's introductory essay, "The Issue of State Capacity." Penned by policy analysts and state and local education leaders alike, the papers provide general guidelines for sound NCLB policy responses, as well as in-depth information on the context and policy activities in a handful of specific districts and states. (Co-sponsored by the National Center on Education and the Economy, the Thomas B. Fordham Foundation and the Progressive Policy Institute, April 2003)...
