Educators Views on the 2001 NCLB Act
This 50 page paper provides an overview of this issue. Educators are the population in the most difficult position when assessing the implications of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001. Though administrators may find that NCLB defines specific trends and changes in curriculum design that may influence administrative processes, educators are the ones who must implement new curriculum design imposed by restructuring under NCLB; must use this curriculum as a basis for their instruction; and must integrate assessments based on both the curriculum and the increasing use of standardized testing to determine the outcomes of the NCLB.

NCLB, View of Teachers
A 10 page research paper that discusses how teachers see the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) act. The NCLB radically changed the nature of the public school system as it serves to deemphasize the local control of public schools, which has been a hallmark of American public education since its inception. The NCLB began to affect schools in the 2002-3 academic years, which means its effects have been ongoing for the last six years. This brings up the question of how do teachers, six years into the NCLB, perceive this legislation and its implications for the future of education in America. This literature review focuses on this question and the opinions of educators, rather than politicians or the general public. Bibliography lists 11 sources.
Need for CTE Education
An 8 page research paper that examines literature pertaining to career and technical education (CTE) and to the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001. Three research questions are explored via a literature review and the writer concludes that the NCLB Act is not achieving its agenda and viable options for students, such as CTE, are being dropped as a consequence of pressure from high-stakes testing. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
Ethics and NCLB Act
This 11 page paper considers ethical issues related to the NCLB Act. The essay begins with the major provisions of the Act and the funding levels for 2004. The ethical issues raised are: Chicago's refusal to stop their public tutoring program paid for with NCLB funds (they failed to meet the criteria to continue funding their own program). The ethical issue addressed is the law versus the child's needs. Another ethical issue discussed is the fact that every state is sitting on NCLB money they have not distributed to local districts and they have been holding these monies for over three years, in most cases. The essay ends concluding most educational leaders will not face the same ethical issue that exists in Chicago but they will face another issue. This is discussed. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
