Cal Poly Pomona President Oritz Named to No Child Left Behind Commission
Cal Poly Pomona President J. Michael Ortiz has been named to the bi-partisan
independent Commission on No Child Left Behind. Congress is scheduled
to begin reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind Act in 2007, and
over the next 12 to 18 months the commission will conduct a high level,
independent and bipartisan analysis of No Child Left Behind.
The commission will use several means to gather information and public input for its recommendations. This includes hosting five national hearings focusing on teachers, assessments, accountability, and sanctions and incentives. Another key element in the commission's efforts will be its Web site: www.nclbcommission.org, which includes background information on the No Child Left Behind Act, updates on Commission activities, and state-by-state academic achievement data. The Web site allows users to submit their concerns, ideas and thoughts about NCLB directly to the commission. Lastly, the commission staff will issue a series of white papers that highlight key NCLB policy issues. These papers will be available on the Commission Web site.
Housed at the Aspen Institute, the commission is funded by some of the top education foundations in the nation, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Carnegie Corporation of New York, and the Spencer Foundation.
