I really don't understand No Child Left Behind. In my class Child Development 2, we have been discussing NCLB. What NCLB is No Child left Behind. No Child left Behind is a United States Act of Congress concerning the education of children in public schools. The NCLB have requirements that the teachers and students have to accomplishs in a little bit of time of 180 days of work. The requirements are all students must be highly qualified, take a standardize test, and meet the AYP (adequate yearly progress). This doesn't make any since highly qualified what's that supposes to me. Everybody is different in their own way. Students have to take a standadrdize test that teacher prep them for about a month or two long. How can you meet the AYP when our school board is all messed up. If you can't meet the NCLB, then you lose you funding for school. I'm so confused with the NCLB. Was George Bush even thinking when he proposed this. I'm glad that this is being reauthorized because I have been birdwatching a lot of things that have been said about NCLB. And to my knowlegde, from a bird's point of view a lot of students are being lefted behind.
What can be changed about the NCLB?
Why are students being rushed to take a test, if funding is being taking away?
Do the school's board really care about the student education?
