The U.S. Department of Education has revoked Washington state's waiver from No Child Left Behind, which means the state will have to find other ways to replace the $40 million it was receiving in federal funds. The decision to revoke the federal waiver stems from the state's refusal to tie students' test scores to teachers' evaluations -- a requirement under the waiver. Loss of the waiver means that the state will resume reporting adequate yearly progress under NCLB.
