GLENVILLE, Minn. — Yesterday, we found out how Iowa is fairing when it comes to No Child Left Behind.

Meanwhile in Minnesota, educators are moving forward with a different system.

Schools are moving forward with the Multiple Measurement Ratings system.

Minnesota received a waiver last year to be exempt from no child left behind, despite the change; educators say the ultimate goal remains the same.

“We set high standards, we want our kids to be accountable, we want our kids to get the best education they can,” Glenville-Emmons Principal Jeff Tietje said. “So there is that emphasis on there.”

The new rating system grades school on proficiency, growth, achievement gap and graduation.
