Educational Decisions about the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) Students under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act
Shah, Amee P.
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2008 n1 Spr 2008
Purpose: The present paper is geared to help speech-language pathologists and other members of the school-based teams to become acquainted with the new educational structure and context in schools today as driven by NCLB [No Child Left Behind Act], and thus, be better prepared to meet the needs of CLD [Culturally and Linguistically Diverse] children. Specifically, the present paper attempts to present the background facts about the NCLB Act, identify pitfalls in its current implementation, and provide recommendations to the school-based teams and administrators to ensure that the needs of the children with limited English proficiency are met despite the limitations and challenges of this Act. Method: This paper is not a data-based study. Instead, in light of the absence of a unifying source of related information for SLPs, this paper was designed to serve as a review of existing literature and leading authorities in the diverse disciplines involved with NCLB. (Results and Conclusions are not presented here as this is not a data-based paper.)
