NCLB, or No Child Left Behind, is a policy signed into effect by the 107 session of Congress in 2001. This policy was created to insure changes were made regarding specific elements in the field of education (K-12). The most prominent points which NCLB addresses are as follows.
1. To improve the academic achievement of those who are disadvantaged.
2. To recruit, hire, and train only highly qualified teachers and principals.
3. To have curriculum which speaks to the needs of ESL students (English as a Second Language).
4. To promote parental involvement within education, the schools, and the student's life.
5. To provide regulations for students who are homeless.
6. To provide regulations for the education of Native Americans, Alaskans, and Hawaiians.
