Description

In January 2002, the controversial No Child Left Behind Act, or NCLB, was signed into law with bipartisan support. In the 13 years since its passing, NCLB has accumulated a range of controversy and criticism. This research investigates the impact of the NCLB on student and teacher performance in the United States. Factors looked upon include: the increase of standardized testing in schools, the rewards and sanctions included in NCLB, national and state authority over schools, international education rankings and if NCLB goals were met or not. Research compiled from multiple publications, both scholarly and journalistic, along with an in-depth interview with an expert on education policy were used to provide insight into the intricacies of government regulation on education and its effects.
