Lazarus selected as peer reviewer for Round 2 of ESEA waivers

Lazarus_Sheryl_140w.gifSheryl Lazarus was selected by the U.S. Department of Education as one of the peer reviewers for Round 2 of Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) waiver requests from states. In September, President Obama announced a process for states to apply for waivers to ESEA (formerly called No Child Left Behind) in exchange for adopting state-developed plans to improve educational outcomes for all students, close achievement gaps, increase equity, and improve instruction quality. In March, Lazarus was part of the team that reviewed Round 2 requests from 26 states and the District of Columbia. She is a senior research associate at the National Center on Educational Outcomes in the College's Institute on Community Integration.
