Educators explain education reform

September 30, 2003

Albany- Community leaders and educators got together tonight to answer questions about federal education reform.

Dougherty County Superintendent Sally Whatley broke down the "No Child Left Behind Act" for the people who came to get a better understanding of the often confusing bill.

Some panelists criticized the law.

"I guess my only concern with federal education reform is that it's taken 35 years for us to identify there's a problem," said Kathaleena Monds, an assistant professor at ASU. "That being the case we have to ask ourselves how effective can the act really be."

The forum was held at Albany State University.
