A Primer on the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001

 

The No Child Left Behind federal legislation was signed into law in January, 2002. It re-defines the federal role in K-12 education to improve academic performance for all students based on four guiding principles:

 

  1. Increased accountability for results

  2. Increased flexibility and local control

  3. Expanded options for parents

  4. Emphasis on teaching methods that are proven to work

 

 

NCLB Requirements for Increased Accountability for Results:

  • Requires state and local report cards that present student achievement levels

  • Establishes annual assessments for every child in grades 3-8

  • Requires states to implement a single statewide accountability system

  • Requires states to establish measurable objectives (AYP-annual yearly progress) that will lead to all students being proficient by the 2013 - 14 school year

  • Increases funding for state and local support for school improvement

 

 

Disaggregating Student Groups

In order to ensure that no child is left behind, NCLB requires schools to disaggregate student achievement results by student group

  • Racial/ethnic group

  • Income level

  • Limited English proficiency status

  • Disability status

 

 

 

This new NCLB accountability requirement obliges the state and local districts to make adequate yearly progress (AYP) for each student group:

  • White

  •  African-American

  •  Hispanic

  •  Asian

  •  Native American

  •  LEP

  • Students with Disabilities

  • Low-income

  • High standards and accountability for subgroup performance*

  • Equitable distribution of resources

  • Sustained class size reductions in high-minority schools
