MEDIA ADVISORY - ETS Poll: Americans Speak on No Child Left Behind Reauthorization

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) -

WHAT:  ETS shares the results of a new major opinion survey on education
       reform. The survey reveals Americans' opinions about the No Child
       Left Behind law, including whether states should be able to opt out
       of the law's provisions, whether federal funding should be tied to
       accountability, and whether national learning standards should
       replace state standards. "Standards, Accountability and Flexibility:
       Americans Speak on No Child Left Behind Reauthorization" is ETS's
       seventh annual "Americans Speak" public opinion poll. The survey
       was conducted by bipartisan pollsters Peter Hart, Democrat, and
       David Winston, Republican. Survey results will be available at at 11:30 a.m. on June 19.
