Haslam Administration Hopeful Feds Will Issue NCLB Waiver

Statement from Gov. Bill Haslam Spokesman David Smith regarding No Child Left Behind Exemptions; Aug. 8, 2011: 

“No Child Left Behind has been valuable in raising standards and expectations since it became law, but this is encouraging news. Tennessee is making significant progress in education, implementing meaningful reforms and leading the country in the amount of data we collect. Gov. Haslam believes the federal government should trust states such as Tennessee – which has proven in its Race to the Top application that it has the data, performance and strategy to get where it needs to go – to know how best to improve.”
