Running Head: Historical Perspective And thanks to NCLB, every child will learn” (Education, 2005). States would have to develop a challenging curriculum in english, math, and science. Students would then have an assessment over what they have learned trough out the school year. The federal government also created some standards in which states would have to base their academic programs from. State boards of education must analyze the data reported to them from the assessments and school districts to determine which school districts are not in compliance. The states may intervene with these school districts and may work more closely with them to bring the school up to standards. The Act also allows parents the opportunity to take their children out of the low performing schools and place their child in schools that are performing on or above state standards. The government under this act also offered to parents for their children supplemental educational services. More recently President Barack Obama and his education administration have sought to change NCLB and implement the Student Success Act (SSA). SSA seeks to educate children past elementary school and high school. This act implies that the curriculum should not only be for current standards but preparing students for post secondary education and the workforce. The SSA planned to accomplish this by “meeting the educational needs of low- achieving children in our Nation’s highest-poverty schools; closing the achievement gap between high- and low-performing children, challenging States and local educational agencies to embrace meaningful, evidence-based education reform, while encouraging state and local innovation’’ (Kline, 2012). The purpose of SSA was to not only reform NCLB but to also allow states to have control over their education standards. This bill seeks to not only hold low performing school districts accountable but the state boards of education as well.

    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.
