Has ""No Child"" Left Behind the Constitution?

Phi Delta Kappan

THE No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, the 2001 reauthorization of President Lyndon Johnson’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, symbolizes all things good and bad in education. While its basic concepts—accountability for results, research-based education programs, increased parental options, and expanded local control and flexibility—have wide support, some say NCLB has failed to deliver. Others have focused on how best to implement its provisions.
