    “I really think the change is a good change. Actually, I haven’t talked to any educator who thought NCLB should continue,” Superintendent Sam Sanders said.
    The waiver means that Kentucky can use a new and more flexible assessment system, Unbridled Learning, which it has developed, to determine progress in schools instead of the federally-mandated NCLB.
