The No Child Left Behind Act, originally enacted in 2002, promised many educational improvements for the youth of America. Underprivileged children had the hope of being educated as well as wealthier kids.
Public schools all over America were curious as to how the bill would improve the education students received. Five years later, it appears that few of the original goals have been met. Congress has finally begun to rewrite the bill. Big mistake. The act needs to be cancelled to repair some of the troubles it has caused over the past five years.
