contact Accreditation Accreditation is a nongovernmental, professional peer review process by which educational institutions and programs are provided technical assistance and evaluated for quality based on pre-established academic and administrative standards. Accreditation has been used by the public as the most reliable indicator of quality at postsecondary institutions and is typically conducted by accrediting agencies composed of similar institutions, programs, or professionals that establish eligibility requirements, evaluation standards, and procedures for being accredited. These agencies are generally categorized as institutional (national or regional) and specialized programmatic and/or professional. Accrediting Agencies (list), American Medical Association. Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES)

  • Introduction
  • Surveys of State Assessment Programs
  • Statistical Compendia
    Most states have implemented statewide testing programs for K-12 student achievement (48, according to the most recent survey by Education Week ) as the primary means of accountability to the public.
    State testing programs vary in terms of grades required to participate in the test administration, content, and format of the tests. Some states use well-known standardized tests that are purchased directly from test publishers; some state education agencies develop their tests internally in order to match the curriculum, whereas others may contract with outside vendors to do so.

MISSION The mission of the Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium (MAEC) is to assist school systems and other educational organizations to create learning environments free of race, gender, class, ethnic and culture biases so that students of all backgrounds will have equal opportunities to flourish. BACKGROUND The Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium (MAEC) was founded as a private not-for-profit corporation in 1992. Its professional staff consists of educators who are experienced in developing effective school programs to meet the needs of diverse student populations. In 1992, the MAEC successfully competed for an U.S. Department of Education grant to provide Title IV Desegregation Assistance Services to school districts in the mid-Atlantic states. Under this grant, MAEC provides training and other assistance services, free of charge, to school districts in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania,Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia who are seeking to comply with the non-discrimination requirements of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A renewal of this grant was awarded to MAEC in 1996. In addition to grants from the U.S. Department of Education (under the Office of Special Programs, the Women's Educational Equity Act, and the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education), the MAEC has received funding for its projects from the District of Columbia Public Schools, the University of Maryland at College Park, and the Maryland Commission on African-American History and Culture.

Education of Homeless Children and Youth
NCH Fact Sheet #10

Published by the National Coalition for the Homeless, July 2001 This fact sheet examines the barriers to public education faced by homeless children and youth, the progress states have made in removing those barriers, and current policy issues. A list of resources for further study is also provided.
Homeless children are by most accounts among the fastest growing segments of the homeless population. Families with children constitute approximately 40% of people who become homeless (U.S. Conference of Mayors, 2001). These proportions are likely to be higher in rural areas; research indicates that families, single mothers, and children make up the largest group of people who are homeless in rural areas (Vissing, 1996). When families become homeless, they are often forced to move frequently. Length-of-stay restrictions in shelters, short stays with friends and relatives, and/or relocation to seek employment make it difficult for homeless children to attend school regularly. In addition, guardianship requirements, delays in transfer of school records, lack of a permanent address and/or immunization records often prevent homeless children from enrolling in school. Often, homeless children and youth who are able to enroll in school face another obstacle: inability to get to their school because of lack of transportation. Homeless families may not have a family car or money for public transportation, and many shelters are unable to provide transportation. Children who miss school frequently fall behind very quickly. Without an opportunity to receive an education, homeless children are much less likely to acquire the skills they need to escape poverty as adults.
