No Child Left Behind Act

The No Child Left Behind Act was signed into law on January 8, 2002. It is a massive law that has revamped the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and imposed staggering obligations on public schools. Chief among these are new testing requirements and accountability standards intended to reduce achievement gaps among student sub-groups. But there are many other provisions to which schools will be required to adhere.
