The No Child Left behind Act is the United States government's answer to ensuring that children are properly educated in the nation's public schools. Through annual testing in basic subjects such as math and reading, children of all grade levels are tested on the knowledge, skills and abilities to determine if the schools are accomplishing their mission of teaching American children. This paper examines the impact of this law and argues that it has a significant negative impact on both the United States education system and children in urban schools.
From the Paper:"Background Standardized testing reflects the belief that one test will be suitable to assess the abilities of all American school children in a particular subject. States are individually responsible for producing these tests, which are then distributed to all schools within the state, where they are administered by the school districts."
