New Law May Leave Many Rural Teachers Behind.
New York Times, v152 n52523 pA1,A16 Jun 23 2003
No Child Left Behind requires that all teachers have a degree in every subject they teach or pass an exam that proves they are "highly qualified" to teach that subject. A story from one Montana town demonstrates how the law is unrealistic for rural and small schools where one teacher may teach many subjects and where teachers are already in short supply. (SV)
