Description:

This paper explains the procedural, cultural and moral reasons behind educators' stance that President Bush's "No Child Left Behind" education program is not only ineffective but detrimental as well. The paper describes lawsuits filed by students, community activists and local districts, demanding that states provide resources adequate to the standards and high-stakes tests imposed by the "No Child Left Behind" plan and explains that instead of fostering diversity as intended, the plan is actually acting as an obstacle to diversity.

From the Paper:

"By 2004, NCLB had spawned an increase in "the wave of adequacy lawsuits filed by students, community activists and local districts, demanding that states provide resources adequate to the standards and high-stakes tests they've imposed" (Schrag 2004, 38+). Earlier lawsuits were in response to the standard tests, such as various state graduation requirements and SATs and so on. However, "A recent adequacy decision in Kansas, which ordered that state to restructure its funding, explicitly cited NCLB; So have new suits filed by school districts and others in Nebraska, Missouri and North Dakota" (Schrag 2004, 38+) and in Ohio."
