The 2004 Charles H. Thompson Lecture-Colloquium Presentation: No Child Left Behind-- Opportunities and Threats
Gray, LaRuth Hackney
Journal of Negro Education, v74 n2 p95-111 Spr 2005
No Child Left Behind (NCLB) plan moves toward proficiency in basic-skills development but ultimately shrinks the notion of educational excellence for all children, occasioning fallacies but not addressing compelling matters that relate to quality, equity and academic achievement for all students. The plan would set up public schools as examples of failure that would aid the administration's drive toward privatization.
