The question will be, how much did we have to compromise on including student testing in teaching evaluations? From Education Week:
Two more states—Alabama and New Hampshire—are about to get waivers from requirements under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, sources say. (Expect an announcement sometime very soon.) That will bring the grand total to … 39 states, plus the District of Columbia. So almost everyone. (But, notably, not big juggernauts California and Texas.)

This is really good news. Commissioner Barry and her team did a tremendous job fighting for being able to maintain the “NH way” while allowing for flexibility for new ways to support improvements in NH education.
