These profiles of state policy in Indiana, Massachusetts, and North Carolina examine how various education options are accessing public funds in three states. They contextualize the funding of education options within larger secondary education reform and dropout prevention and recovery efforts and provide a close look at state education funding policy in each of the three states. Building on previous work of the National Youth Employment Coalition, each profile begins with a one-page overview of the secondary education reform context, major dropout prevention and recovery efforts, and funding of education options in the state. Overviews are followed by more in-depth discussion of these areas, as well as detailed information on state funding of public education in each state and examples of how state policy affects programming at the local level.

NYEC & CLASP NCLB Recommendations - Sept. 2007

On September 11, NYEC and the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) issued "Recommendations to Improve No Child Left Behind for Struggling Students and Disconnected Youth" by Rhonda Tsoi-A-Fatt, Linda Harris, Mala Thakur, and Jonathan Larsen. Every day, an estimated 2,500 students across the nation drop out of high school. While the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) has succeeded in bringing to light the disparities that exist in our education system, it has failed to shine a light and provide solutions to the pressing problem of high school dropouts. These recommendations--by CLASP and the National Youth Employment Coalition--focus on how the resources in NCLB can be used to ensure that these youth have access to systems, support, and funding to attain a viable education that prepares them for future learning opportunities and the world of work. 8 pages.
