Superintendents' Views of the No Child Left Behind Act
Ruiz, Pablo; Kelsey, Cheryl; Slate, John R.
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v4 n3 Jul-Sep 2009
The views of 33 superintendents in South Texas were obtained concerning the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act through a Likert-format survey. Results were that superintendents perceived NCLB as having limited, at best, impact in encouraging the development of more educational services; opening more communication between the district and parents; providing an equal opportunity to disadvantaged pupils; creating strong community relations; and, involving more parents in the education of their children. Superintendents in South Texas are implementing the NCLB requirements with limited information being provided to the parents or the community. Implications are discussed.
