No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB)

I was recently asked, "What is NCLB"?
The No Child left behind Act (NCLB) was signed into law in 2002.  It is a national policy that holds schools and districts accountable for success or failure of students by measuring just what students have and have not learned academically.
The goal NCLB was to raise standards to accomplish achievement and improve student performance in all US public schools.
Criticisms following NCLB:
• Using a test to measure the progress and competence of students only gives a very limited view of student skills. 
• It excludes classroom tests, quizzes, projects, portfolios, classroom observations, homework, etc.
• It does not measure creativity, motivation, , flexible thinking and social skills
• It forces teachers to teach to the test and does not allow students to demonstrate critical thinking skills needed for success in life. 
• The tests and procedures mandated by NCLB are not necessarily the best ones for achieving these high standards.
• It does not consider students on the opposite ends of the bell curve; it only pertains to the average.
•Each state is allowed to set their own standards which have lowered the overall achievement standard.

Hopefully this helps.

Hi Toya, Thanks for the NCLB info. My next question is about transitioning. We are stressed about this because our son is transitioning from elementary to middle school. We were told this is a very critical period, is this true and if so why? Cheers, Alan

Alan, Transition from elementary to middle school (as well as junior high school) can be difficult and stressful for many students as it often occurs when many changes in the individual, family and school are occurring at the same time such as: •impersonal school structure, going from one teacher to several •puberty, and concerns on body image •increased focus on assessment, achievement and performance •formal operational thought, changes occurring in social cognition •increase responsibility and independence, relying less on parents •changes in homogeneous set of peers to a larger heterogeneous set of peers •top-dog phenomenon, the feeling of moving from being the biggest student with greater power to the smaller student with least power. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
