So Much for Getting Tough on NCLB Compliance

Last month, the Secretary called for a review of state compliance with the highly qualified teacher provisions in NCLB (Belated Review of HQT Reports -- Why Now?) that made it sound like the USDE might finally address the joke that states have made of HQT.

This month, the Title I Monitor is reporting that little will be done about states that have made little progress or implemented watered-down requirements:

"Few believe that any states will face immediate sanctions from the U.S. Department of Education. More likely, nearly every state will be required to submit a revised plan outlining how it will ensure the teacher quality requirements are met by the end of the 2006-07 school year."
