Description:

This paper discusses the criticism against the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2002, which aims to close the achievement gap by holding school districts and states accountable, encouraging the use of flexible educational approaches and supporting parents' rights to school choice. It details the lawsuit filed by the state of Connecticut against the federal government claiming that the overall differences in levels of funding and costs to the state, due to NCLB, were preventing the state from more effectively using its resources. The paper goes on to describe the growing opposition to the Act.
