    The “No Child Left Behind Act”, (NCLB) was to hold schools accountable for the education of their students to increase student performance, teacher strategies and parent involvement. NCLB was to impact schools as they expected all students to reach 100% proficiency by the year 2014. Stating all children need to be given equitable education though the children with high needs are mainstreamed. Requirements for students are take standardized tests annually on the core subjects. Schools are so focused on preparing their students for the testing so they may receive the funding from the government. So much is geared to the performance on tests, when schools do poorly they look at the teachers as inadequate. Students are not getting the education that they deserve to receive, with pushing students through the system. Sad to learn that our children are not proficient at their grade level and then to be allowed to graduate and then to survive in this world without being fully educated.

    Federal government has no business being in the "education" business. The education of our kids should fall on the shoulders of the States alone - and the local school districts in those States. Also more parent involvement is necessary. Schools should educate and not baby sit or teach liberal social causes. They should teach the 3 R's.
