Ten Effects of NCLB Discus sed with Jack Jennings

Center on Education Policy (CEP) President Jack Jennings spent a couple of hours at the
Alliance for Excellent Education on Wednesday to discuss CEP’s recent publication “The Ten
Big Effects of the No Child Left Behind Act on Public Schools”. Reflecting on his involvement
in education policy since 1967, Jennings noted that while the accountability movement did not
begin with NCLB, he has “never seen the State Departments of Education defer to the federal
government like they have in the last five years”. To view the CEP publication, visit:
