...This year, for the first time in 15 years, most state tests in California schools, tests required under NCLB, the federal No Child Left Behind Act, will not be given...The tests may not be given in 2014-15, either. And without the tests, schools won’t get the customary API (Academic Performance Index) rating, either. In effect, there will be no state accountability system.
Until 2015 at least, we’ll be flying blind.
