The Obama Administration has approved Oregon’s application for a waiver from key provisions of the “No Child Left Behind Federal Education Law.”  The U.S. Department of Education announced the decision Wednesday.  Oregon joins 31 other states that have been allowed to waive the federal law's requirement that all students be proficient in math and reading by 2014.  Oregon's waiver application emphasized Governor John Kitzhaber's plan to create achievement compacts spelling out the standards that school districts, colleges and universities are expected to achieve.  But Oregon's waiver is conditional because the state will ultimately have to come up with a plan to evaluate teachers and administrators based in improvement in their students' performance.
