No Child Left Behind aims to raise the achievement of all students by providing additional federal funding while holding schools and teachers accountable for student performance. In Minnesota, student test scores have risen dramatically since the federal legislation was passed in 2001. But what is really behind the increase in test scores? Are school districts using test score data to improve curriculum or are they "teaching to the test"? Are teachers able to link test results to effective classroom practices, and does test data help them identify and focus on the needs of struggling learners? Do standardized tests accurately measure student achievement and academic preparedness?

Please join us for this special opportunity to meet with local education experts. Moderated by Kent Pekel. Hosted by Policy Forum Co-director Tim Penny and Nate Garvis, vice president of Government Affairs for Target.
