Building on Results: A Blueprint for Strengthening the “No Child Left Behind Act”
Margaret Spellings (au)
On Jan. 8, 2002, Pres. Bush signed the landmark “No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB)” into law. It was designed to end the “soft bigotry of low expectations” so that “all students will have a better chance to learn, to excel, & to live out their dreams.” Academic standards would be set by states, schools would be held accountable for results, & the fed. gov’t. would support both with increased resources & flexibility. The law’s ultimate goal was steady academic gains until all students can read & do math at or above grade level, closing for good the nation’s achievement gap between disadvantaged & minority students & their peers. This report by Sec. of Ed. Spellings provides a blueprint & policy proposals for building on the success of NCLB to strengthen it.
