No Child Left Behind

There are three key hallmarks of the new bill:

1. Testing

2. Accountability

3. Flexibility/Choice


No child left behind3 l.jpg

Thinking behind NCLB: “With timely, concise, understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

No Child Left Behind


No child left behind4 l.jpg
No Child Left Behind understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

Trojan Horse – NCLB designed to bring public education down and bring in vouchers

Force Five Hurricane– for teacher education schools

“In God We Trust: All Others Bring Data” – NCLB requires programs based on scientifically based research


Nclb testing l.jpg
NCLB: Testing understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • Beginning in 2005-06, every student will be tested annually in grades 3-8 in reading and math, once in grades 10-12.

  • By 2007-08 students must be assessed in science in at least one grade of grades 3-5, 6-9, and 10-12.


Nclb testing and accountability l.jpg
NCLB: Testing and Accountability understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • States must set adequate yearly progress (AYP) targets toward having all children meet proficiency levels in the core subjects by the 2013-14 school year.


Nclb testing and accountability7 l.jpg
NCLB: Testing and Accountability understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • Schools and districts must meet identified AYP targets using the results of the tests. Test results must be disaggregated.

When Schools Fail To Meet AYP understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

For 4 years: Parents can transfer kids, or select supplemental service. School restructuring begins.

For 5 years: Transfers, supplemental services and restructuring continue. State takeovers possible.


Nclb highly qualified teachers l.jpg
NCLB: Highly Qualified Teachers understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • By the end of 2005-06 school year, all states must ensure that every classroom teacher is “highly qualified.” Per the law, a highly qualified teacher must be certified or licensed; hold at least a bachelor’s degree; and have demonstrated competencies in his or her teaching area.


Highly qualified teachers l.jpg
Highly Qualified Teachers understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

Each state will set the specific requirements for “highly qualified” teachers in their state.New teachers must be tested.

  • Middle school teachers must demonstrate competence in all the academic areas they teach.

  • Alternative certified teachers considered highly qualified before state certification.

Highly Qualified Teachers understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • For example: In PA, new guidelines for highly qualified say teachers with elementary certifications who teach seventh and eighth grades must now pass content-area tests in their subject matter in order to be deemed highly qualified.


Nclb highly qualified teachers14 l.jpg
NCLB: Highly Qualified Teachers understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

STATES ARE REQUIRED TO develop a measurable plan to increase the number of all core subject teachers who are highly qualified. This plan must include an increase in the number of teachers who are participating in high quality professional development.


Nclb title ii part a teacher quality grants l.jpg
NCLB: Title II Part A understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.Teacher Quality Grants

To help districts and states ensure that every teacher is “highly qualified,” and meet the State plan, NCLB Title II Part A “Improving Teacher Quality Grants” was developed.


Nclb teacher quality grants l.jpg
NCLB Teacher Quality Grants understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

Over $2.85 billion has been made available to states and school districts nationwide for Title II Part A grants during the 2002-2003 school year.


Nclb title ii part a l.jpg
NCLB: Title II Part A understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

Title II Part A combines funding from the Eisenhower state grants program and the Class Size Reduction program. Money goes to the states by formula.


Nclb for leas to receive title ii part a funds l.jpg
NCLB: For LEAs To Receive Title II , Part A Funds understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

95 percent of the Title II Part A grants the state receives will go to the districts. But, districts must FIRST apply to the state education agency for the funds.

Before the district can apply for these grants, it must conduct a NEEDS ASSESSMENT of the teaching force, and a LOCAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN outlining what the district will do to ensure all teachers are highly qualifed. *Teachers must be involved in the needs assessment and the Local Improvement Plan


Local improvement plan must include l.jpg
Local Improvement Plan Must Include: understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • The results of the needs assessment

  • Activities the district will carry out with funds, including professional development

  • How the activities are based on scientifically based research and why they are expected to increase student achievement

LEA Uses of Title II Funds understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

Funds are not required to be used just on math and science education.

Districts have expanded flexibility in the use of these funds. Funds must be used to address needs assessment issues, and pay for activities outlined in the Local Improvement Plan. However . .

When determining how Title II funds are to be used, based on the needs assessment, keep in mind that ALL teachers, including science teachers, need to be fully qualified by 2005-06. Also, state science assessments begin in 2007.


Nclb flexibility l.jpg
NCLB - Flexibility understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • Districts have flexible use of Title II funds. They can opt to move 50 percent of funds from one or all of four major federal programs (Teacher Quality State Grants, Education Technology, Safe and Drug Free Schools, and Innovative Education Programs) into Title I programs, or into any one of these programs.


Nclb resources available to science teachers l.jpg
NCLB Resources Available to Science Teachers understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • In addition to Title II Part A, science educators should be familiar with these programs in NCLB:

  • Title II, Part B: Math/Science Partnerships

  • Title II Part D: Education Technology

  • Title V, Part A: Innovative Education Programs


Title ii part b math and science partnerships l.jpg
Title II, Part B: Math and Science Partnerships understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • M/S Partnerships will receive $101 million in FY 2003 (this July) The money will go to the states; states will award competitive grants to partnerships of higher ed, K-12 districts, and others to improve student achievement in math and science.


How can teachers get involved l.jpg
How Can Teachers Get Involved? understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

How can science teachers get involved?

  • Become proactive about your staff development.

  • Find out how these federal programs work. Find out who in your district is responsible for staff training and federal funds.

How Can Science Teachers Get Involved understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

3. Get involved with your district’s needs assessment and local improvement plan. (Who did old Eisenhower plans? Who is doing compliance with NCLB in your district? Who is in charge of instruction in your district/state?)

4. Create an individual professional development plan that can be used in the local plan.

The media is reporting l.jpg
The media is reporting understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • States are reporting that anywhere from 25 to 80 percent of their schools will be labeled as “failing” under NCLB.

The media is reporting understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • Many believe NCLB is an unfunded mandate. One estimate: the law adds $77 per student in federal aid, creates $575 per student in obligations.


And finally l.jpg
And finally understandable information about gaps in student achievement, the public will hold educators, policymakers, elected officials, parents and itself accountable for raising the level of education.

  • “The NCLB Act declares that education should be scientific. It mentions ‘scientifically based research’ 110 times. Yet it has zero scientific basis for what it prescribes. Nothing that it forces on the states has been tried. It does turn our kids into lab rats. That makes it both incredibly hypocritical and irresponsible.”
