Every day, we learn what works so students can make greater progress. Six years after No Child Left Behind's passage – and midway to the nation's goal of having students on grade level or better in reading and math by 2014 – we have collected more data than ever before about the academic performance of our students and schools. This information enables all of us to chart where we are as individual states and as a nation and to map a course of action for future progress. The foundation of our success will depend on our continued commitment to the following core principles: High Standards Annual Assessments Accountability for Results Highly Qualified Teachers in Every Classroom (HQT) Information and Options for Parents All Children on Grade Level By 2014
