A Think Twice Review of:

High Achieving Students in the Era of NCLB

Think Twice - Jul 29, 2008

Publisher/Think Tank - Thomas B Fordham Institute

Author(s) -

This two-part report suggests that high achieving students may be losing out under the No Child Left Behind Law due to the fact that more attention and resources are being focused on lower achieving students

Reviewer(s) - Gregory Camilli, Rutgers University

Camilli praises the report's focus on high achievers, but concludes that the report's findings and policy implications inappropriately overreach. Camilli suggests that the report's two studies attempt to "inform broad policies on the strength of two fairly narrow analyses."
