No Child Left Behind (NCLB)

Federal legislation passed in 2002 -- the No Child Left Behind Act(opens in new window) -- is in conflict with California's educational policies in several areas, including supplementary authorizations. State and federal authorities are attempting to negotiate resolutions of these differences. Check with the History Department credential advisor for current information about these issues. The California Department of Education has published an NCLB Resource Guide (PDF) that explains many of the issues and implications associated with this legislation.
