from Superintendent Woods on the renewal of Georgia’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver
pleased that Georgia was granted continued flexibility from the overly
prescriptive and one-size-fits-all AYP system,” State School Superintendent
Richard Woods said. “However, I am still hopeful that Congress will reauthorize
the Elementary and Secondary Education Act so Georgia and other states have
more flexibility and autonomy over accountability measures for schools. States
know what works to improve education better than the federal government."
