NCLB: Using Implementation and Reform of NCLB to Design Policy and Practice for Vulnerable Youth
The Harvard Civil Rights Project and the Warren Institute co-sponsored a forum on NCLB in November 2006. A number of excellent papers were presented that provide much valuable evidence about the problems and failures of NCLB.
Two groups of articles are available online.

The Warren Institute is leading a research initiative entitled No Child Left Behind: Using Implementation and Reform of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) to Design Policy and Practice for Vulnerable Students. The goal of the effort is to develop and advance research-based proposals for creating educational accountability systems at the federal, state and district levels that advance the twin goals of educational attainment and achievement. We seek to improve the capacity of civil rights and educational advocacy organizations to engage effectively in public and legislative debates about reforming NCLB's accountability mechanisms. We also aim to increase public awareness and advocacy group focus on policy measures that promise to expand incentives for school officials to more effectively prepare students for college and work and improve on-time graduation rates for all students, with a particular emphasis on helping minority and other vulnerable and at-risk students; and, increase the ability of high schools undergoing effective reform to successfully deliver services to at-risk and vulnerable students without undue interference from federal and state governments.
