As the parent of a school-age child, you’ve no doubt heard about No Child Left Behind ( NCLB ) and would like to understand what it means--especially the benefits it offers to you and your child.

NCLB is a law that was passed by Congress with strong support from both political parties. President Barack Obama believes that the overall goal of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) is the right one –"ensuring that all children can meet high standards". The law provides federal support from kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12).
