|NCLB Common Core School Supplies...||
NCLB: Yes it's still here, but it became a directive for education reform when it was signed into law (#107-110) by President George Bush on January 8, 2002. It was conceived and promoted by the [then] federal administration in Washington, DC. Intending to improve reading and math [test] scores at schools across the United States, the law re-authorized a number of federal programs targeted at education reform.
However, a variety of opinions, both pro and con, have been written about this landmark legislation. Both primary and secondary schools are now facing accountability tests that promise to leave no child behind - at least in "test scores" for reading and math. Parents are now provided with more information about the schools that their children attend. Parents are also being given more choice in where they may send their children to school.
The problem that arises is that these "test score" requirements seem to take resources from all the other activities needed for a well-rounded education.
The more you learn the more you will realize that success in reading is the key to success throughout your child's school career.
