Closing The NCLB Barn Door...or Stemming The Tide?

Wondering which states have been denied lately in their efforts to push for bigger subgroups (and fewer schools not making AYP)? According to the USDE, six states that have been denied include AK (moving from differentiated group size of 20/40 to 25 for all kids in 06-07), as well as IL, MI, AL, NV, and OK (all requested for a higher n-size that was "not supported by data." The Spellings letter also indicates that the Department intends to ban differentiated group sizes like AK'S at some point in the future.
