No Child Left Behind: Help for Students and Their Families
US Department of Education
"No Child Left Behind" ("NCLB") requires that parents receive certain information about their child's education, as well as the overall performance of the child's school on state tests in reading, math and science. "NCLB" gives funding for early childhood learning; allows for more spending on each student, especially disadvantaged students; and, in some cases, provides the chance for children to attend better schools regardless of where they live. "NCLB" also requires that every class of "core" subjects have a highly qualified teacher and encourages schools to teach based on ideas and methods that have been scientifically shown to work. This booklet provides information about "NCLB" criteria and examples of resources for parents.
