At a meeting with Education Secretary Arne Duncan in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, some state education leaders expressed concerns about potential conflicts that could arise if districts are granted No Child Left Behind waivers separately from states. For instance, California Superintendent Tom Torlakson said it would cause problems if the state had to hold waiver districts to different accountability standards than others. Duncan responded that he would prefer to work with states but would remain flexible with granting waivers.
