No Child Left Behind (NCLB) - National Education Policy 

We have developed an NCLB study group which has put together a "talking points" sheet with three sections organized around themes such as accountability, equity, choice, etc... :

  • What NCLB claims
  • What it really means
  • What our vision is
We also organized two school-based community forums last spring (Kelly HS and Kelvyn Pk HS) to inform and dialogue with teachers about the law and how to organize against it, and we plan to continue this work.
