Education 2 Eric Boell Composition II Dr. Zhang Fall 2009 p. 635, #3 Abstract On January 8, 2002, the No Child Left Behind Act was signed by George W. Bush to become  law.  This law is intended to provide better education to the public school across the United  States.  The law is specific in goals and timeframes to accomplish those goals.  However, the  effectiveness of the No Child Left Behind Act has been debated.  This is a look at different views  held on the law and the agreement that these authors offer.

3 The education of children today forms and shapes our country’s future.  The No Child  Left Behind (NCLB) Act is aimed at strengthening education in the United States.  NCLB is a  “complex law covering many different aspects of education, its primary purpose is to impose  rigorous state-enacted testing standards on school systems across the country, with concomitant  penalties for schools that do not show improvement” (as qtd. in Newport, 2009, para.2).  The  May 11 th  – 24 th  issue of  Insight  magazine featured articles that argued the pros and cons of the  NCLB Act.  Paige, a former U.S. Secretary of Education, supports and defends what the NCLB  Act stands for.  However, the president of the National Education Association, Weaver, is more  convincing in his argument.  He claims that the NCLB Act is in need of repair and gives specific  suggestions for its improvement.   President George W. Bush signed the No Child Left Behind Act into law on January 8,  2002.  The goal of this law is “100% proficiency for public school students in several subject  areas, including math and reading, by the 2013-2014 school year” (as qtd. in Newport, 2009,
