Expanding Perspectives highlights Maryland State Board meeting discussions about topics of interest to educators and stakeholders.

How will Maryland's NCLB waiver change accountability?

"Federal officials are allowing Maryland to concentrate efforts on those schools in greatest need of assistance," Dr. Sadusky said. "We are not turning our back on accountability, and will continue to work to make certain all schools and students improve. At the same time, we are pleased the U.S. Department of Education will allow us to funnel resources into those classrooms with the most vexing issues." —Bernard Sadusky, Interim State Superintendent
