by: Carla C. Johnson and Nikki Hanegan

The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 is the historic education reform effort that President Bush proposed his first week in office, which Congress passed into law on January 8, 2002. NCLB reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)--the main federal law affecting education from kindergarten through high school. This article addresses the implications of NCLB on middle school science teachers and provides a detailed account of the principles behind this effort.
