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
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."
