About the Forum on Educational Accountability (FEA)

The Forum on Educational Accountability has been formed to expand on and advance the ideas in the Joint Statement to improve federal education policy. The national education, civil rights, religious, children's, disability, and civic organizations comprising the Forum are committed to the No Child Left Behind Act's objectives of strong academic achievement for all children and closing the achievement gap.

However, the member organizations believe that significant, constructive corrections are needed to ensure that federal education law has helpful rather than harmful educational consequences. The law should focus on helping states and localities improve student learning instead of applying sanctions to schools and districts for failing to raise test scores.

The FEA is a working group of some of the organizations that have signed the Joint Statement.
