NCLB Makes a Difference

While we’re on the subject of the No Child Left Behind Act, listen to this National Public Radio interview with Tajah Gross, the principal of Northwestern High School in Baltimore. Ms. Gross talks about how the law has changed education in her school. Northwestern High School is currently in the law's restructuring phase, not having made Adequate Yearly Progress for the last five years. Ms. Gross seems to have a fairly positive outlook on the No Child Left Behind Act and she says its requirements have forced school officials to reevaluate programs and make sure they’re working for students.
