The Center on Education Policy (CEP) has launched a new website called NCLB Waiver Watch. This website tracks current developments related to the new waivers that would relieve states from some of the provisions of NCLB.
Given the very public and fast-paced nature of the issue, CEP has created an interactive map that illustrates which states have publicly expressed their interest in applying for a waiver, those that have applied, those that have been granted or denied waivers, and those that have been not been officially granted waivers but who are classified as “special cases,” and thus get some exemptions.
As of August 21, there are four states that have formally applied for waivers (MN, MI, KY, TN); one that has been granted a waiver (ID); two that have been denied (KS and AR); and fifteen others that have expressed interest in applying at some point in the future.
