Transfer Option in NCLB to be Made Weaker?

Under No Child Left Behind, some students are able to transfer to other schools. That’s not a bad thing, if you’re a student who would benefit from a different environment. But that provision would be crippled if a proposed change to the law takes place.

Under a measure supported by Jerry Moran and Dennis Moore, two members of the Kansas congressional delegation, “‘Failing’ schools would have one year to improve before students could transfer to another school. Currently, transfer is an immediate option.”

A year’s delay in finding a better school could have a serious impact on a student’s academic career. Why would that be a good thing?
