About the Event:
Six years ago, on January 8, 2002, President Bush signed into law No Child Left Behind (NCLB), which was designed to close the achievement gap and hold schools accountable. Since then, there has been much disagreement about the effectiveness of the law, due to funding issues and the concerns of educators and parents across the nation.
Congress is set to reform No Child Left Behind in 2008, and this forum will allow teachers, school administrators, and parents to discuss with Rep. Kind and State Superintendent Burmaster the effects NCLB has had on students in western Wisconsin and what changes would best address its shortfalls.
Please join us for this important forum about the future of education.
