Long title An act to close the achievement gap with accountability, flexibility, and choice, so that no child is left behind. Signed into law by President George W. Bush signing the No Child Left Behind Act. The act did not assert a national achievement standard—each state developed its own standards. NCLB expanded the federal role in public education through further emphasis on annual testing, annual academic progress, report cards, and teacher qualifications, as well as significant changes in funding. The bill passed in the Congress with bipartisan support. By 2015, criticism from right, left, and center had accumulated so much that a bipartisan Congress stripped away the national features of No Child Left Behind.
The legislation was proposed by President George W. No Child Left Behind requires all public schools receiving federal funding to administer a statewide standardized test annually to all students. If the school’s results are repeatedly poor, then steps are taken to improve the school. Schools that miss AYP for a second consecutive year are publicly labeled as “In Need of Improvement,” and must develop a two-year improvement plan for the subject that the school is not teaching well. Students have the option to transfer to a better school within the school district, if any exists.
