The Highly Qualified Teacher Under NCLB
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers, v79 n8 p33-35 Nov-Dec 2004
When President George W. Bush signed the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) into law in January 2002, it was generally described as the most sweeping national education reform that had been enacted in decades. Amending the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 made significant changes in the major federal programs that support schools in their efforts to educate children. The requirements spelled out within the No Child Left Behind Act do not only address student achievement, however; the law also includes teacher qualifications. This document discusses those qualifications.
