No Child Left Behind (NCLB)

The new No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) has a lot more to it than just mandatory testing.  Some parts of it may be very good for our children, depending on how it is implemented and enforced.  The following sites provide information on this important new piece of legislation.

"Children with Disabilities Under No Child Left Behind: Myths and Realities" was put together by The National Association of Protection and Advocacy Systems (NAPAS)
