Connecticut granted No Child Left Behind waiver
Connecticut has been granted an exemption from the No Child Left Behind Act.
U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan told officials in Hartford yesterday the state earned the waiver because of the education reform bill passed earlier this month.
The waiver could mean some changes for local school districts.
Bridgeport says the waiver means they will continue to receive federal money even if students do not meet federal minimum standards.
