Loucks, Hazel E.; Cameron, Eleanor G.
Online Submission
In the few short years since its passage in 2002, the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) has become the focus of many in education, from state superintendents to researchers to teachers. In this Issues in Education we seek to give the reader a basic introduction to the way in which NCLB and its main measure of success, Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), work in Illinois, and to compare Illinois' implementation of NCLB with that of other states. We provide a history of adoption of NCLB in Illinois, explain the nuts and bolts of AYP, and finish with conclusions and recommendations. (Contains 18 notes.)
