No Child Left Behind (NCLB)
NCLB was a federal education-reform bill that was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2002. NCLB reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.
NCLB provided federal money to schools to improve academic outcomes among students. The primary purpose of NCLB was to ensure that students in every public school achieved important learning goals while being educated in safe classrooms by well-prepared teachers.
