NCLB 4 Time draws closer to the reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and many different ideas of reformation and strengthening or loosening the Act are floating around, along with defenses of the solidity of NCLB in its current form. Education secretary Margaret Spelling says she is against “watering down” the act, while others want to loosen the requirements of the act like Chairman of the House of Education Committee, George Miller (Representative of California). NCLB was passed in 2001 and addressed the current problems with the United States school system. It provided possible solutions to the achievement gap and also provided standards for teaching qualifications. It also established the requirement of a national, equal system for evaluating the current state of education in the nation; a way of grading everyone fairly to gauge the status of the nation and to help determine areas (both subject and region) that needed improvements.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
