NCLB: The Truth and Consequences of NCLB

Several educators provide information about the NCLB legislation and the unintended consequences.  This video was produced by AASA.  Following are some examples of the unintended consequences:
1. Labeling a failing school to allow poorly performing students to change schools, but generally the more able students leave the failing school.
2. Emphasis on passing the test rather than having the time for students ask why.  Instead the child is taught there is one right answer when taking the test.
3. Emphasis is placed on helping those students close to the passing level rather than helping all students improve academically.
