No Child Left Behind

The information that is in the following video blog and summary is from:

Some Perspectives from Rural School Districts on The No Child Left Behind Act By: Ying Zhang, Center On Education Policy

The article I read about was on No Child Left Behind Act. This act was made so American students can work together and be at the same level and curriculum as everyone else in the country. This act seemed to be a good idea because of the high standards that were applied. All the teachers have to have bachelors degree and full teachers licenses. Since the teachers are smarter and have a higher level of education, government thought it would be a good idea and this would make the students smarter and able to learn more. As a matter of fact, this did the complete opposite. Because the teachers had to stay at the same pace and level of all the other classes, the teachers do not get the opportunity to help out students that are falling behind. This act is crippling our future because these students that aren't keeping up are being put into special education classes. These students don't need to be in these classes and it is only shooting down their self esteem.
