  • This may help you to understand what NCLB is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Child_Left_Behind_Act

    Or this: http://www.ed.gov/nclb/landing.jhtml

    And this is an excellent summary of NCLB requirements: http://www.asdk12.org/NCLB/everyone/summary.asp

  • Maybe this will help - NCLB, techncially, doesn't apply to children directly, rather it is an Act set up to force accountability on public schools. If a school doesn't meet the accountability standards, it can be penalized by losing its federal funding.

    Does that make anything more clear for you?

  • I'm sorry anon :50, I don't know what you mean. I was not being "sassy", I was being serious...I wanted to provide further clarification and asked if I had done so. What is sassy about that?
