Will NCLB waivers be legal?

And worthwhile?

Kentucky’s educators are hot to get an exemption from No Child Left Behind laws (NCLB) that will allow us to use only our new, state-developed accountability system to judge school performance.

It’s an understandable desire, but do President Obama and his US Department of Education have the authority to grant such waivers under current law?

And, will the always present strings that will come with such a waiver create more problems than the waiver solves?

CNS News’ Fred Lucas chimes in with this informative piece.
