Note: Congress has reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the statute formerly known as No Child Left Behind. The new statute, Every Student Succeeds Act, was signed into law by President Obama on December 10, 2015.
On January 8, 2002, President Bush signed the No Child Left Behind Act into law. He offered this advice to parents:
"We know that every child can learn. Now is the time to ensure that every child does learn."
parents, you are your children's first teachers and their strongest
advocates. You have a critical role to play - both in how you
raise your children and in how you work for meaningful and accurate
accountability in their schools."
many children are segregated in schools without standards, shuffled
from grade to grade . . . This is discrimination, pure and simple.
