Tips for Parents: NCLB and School Choice | PDF

On January 8, 2002, President George W. Bush signed into law the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), a bipartisan reauthorization of an important federal law first enacted in 1965. Key provisions of NCLB call for U.S. public schools to be evaluated on the basis of their students’ scores on state-selected NCLB tests each year. If schools fail to make “adequate yearly progress” (AYP) for several years in a row, parents are allowed to choose another school for their children, a school that has been meeting its AYP goals.

For more information on NCLB and public school choice, visit the US Department of Education’s NCLB website at:
