This paper examines problems in the No Child Left Behind Act, which was considered to be one of the most significant attempts at educational reform in recent history. The author considers how the Act affects students, teachers, and communities. Additionally, the author takes the position that No Child Left Behind Behind (NCLB) has had an overall negative effect on the educational movement in America and that there is need for a change in NCLB strategies. The author illustrates these points with several reviews of several publications.
