School Choice: A critical look at the problems faced by offering school choice under the No Child Left Behind legislature
The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001 has become the United States' most important recent educational reform mandate. President George W. Bush signed the No Child Left Behind Act into law in January 2002. The focus of the research is to take a critical look at the school choice component of NCLB and the implications that large urban school districts encounter as a result of its implementation. School choice ensures that minority and low-income students who attend poorly performing schools are offered transfers to higher performing schools.
