Key Policy Letters Signed by the Education Secretary or Deputy Secretary - States that do not reach the goal of having a highly qualified teacher (HQT) in every class by the end of the 2005-06 school year will not lose federal funds if they are implementing No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and making a good-faith effort to reach the HQT goal as soon as possible. This letter explains the steps that states need to take, and the actions the U.S. Department of Education will take to confirm that a state is making a good-faith effort in this area. (Margaret Spellings, U.S. Department of Education, October 2005)...
