No Child Left Behind (NCLB)
The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act was signed into law on January 8, 2002. Since then, ISBE has aligned federal and state initiatives to support of higher student achievement, stronger public schools and a better-prepared teacher workforce.
NCLB has affected every school and district in Illinois and there have been some challenges along with vast improvements in student achievement.
Illinois continues to supports the act’s overall purpose - to ensure that children in every classroom enjoy the benefits of well-prepared teachers, research-based curriculum and safe learning environments.
