The Future of No Child Left Behind
Ravitch, Diane; Chubb, John E.
Education Next, v9 n3 p48-56 Sum 2009
More than seven years ago, President George W. Bush signed No Child Left Behind (NCLB) into law. Sweeping calls for testing, intervening in persistently low-performing schools, and policing teacher quality made it the most ambitious legislation on K-12 schooling in American history. The law, due for congressional reauthorization in 2007, still awaits legislative action. This spring, the Hoover Institution's Koret Task Force issued 10 recommendations to guide reauthorization. In this forum, lead author of "Learning from No Child Left Behind," EdisonLearning's John Chubb, and education historian and task force member Diane Ravitch, who declined to sign the recommendations, weigh in on the future of the law.
