Three More NCLB Waivers Extended

The U.S. Department of Education has extended three additional No Child Left Behind waivers—for Alabama, Texas, and Puerto Rico. All three recipients must continue to work with the department on teacher evaluations. The letters went out on Friday.

All three states' extensions are conditional. Each state was asked to submit to guidelines to show how its teacher and principal evaluations measurse student growth.

Puerto Rico also has other conditions placed on its waiver, due to issues with its implementation of School Improvement Grants.

Who has a waiver and who doesn't? Who has been extended and who hasn't? Who is eligible for a "deluxe" longer term renewal, because the Education Department believes they are on track with their teacher evaluation system? This map explains it all:
