ATLANTA - Georgia education officials say the state will become one of the nation's first to appeal some provisions of the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Federal officials have said that states would be allowed starting this month to apply for a waiver from many of the act's requirements, provided that other reform efforts are pursued.

State School Superintendent John Barge and U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson plan to submit Georgia's waiver request today.

Officials in some other states have also expressed interest in the waivers.
