Webisode 21: Inside No Child Left Behind

With lofty and legitimate objectives, the Bush education initiative called, “No Child Left Behind” has become a major controversy among educators, parents and administrators. Is it working? Who is benefiting and who is being hurt?

Nationally recognized and awarded principal, Robin Welch, will help us to understand the intent and execution of the program. Robin will share his opinion on the merits and limitations of the initiative and what the future looks like with this program in a shifting political arena.

Principal Welch is a highly respected educator and administrator who has been involved with all aspects of childhood education and special needs. Among numerous other accolades, he is the recipient of the 2005 National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) National Distinguished Principal Award and the 2005 Massachusetts Elementary School Principals’ Association (MESPA) Thomas C. Passios Award.

I just want to say, as a mom of a functioning autistic child, I am outraged with the "No Child Left Behind" attitude and structure. The testing is too generalized. My child has not been on his grade level for learning ever and still our school district pushes him through the grades. The only answer why I get is that it will harm his self esteem. Well, while I do understand this sounds great in theory. In reality, my son is set up for failure every school year, because he did not understand and learn the curriculum the year before. The tests that my son takes, The WASL, does not cater to him and his test taking skills or needs, they cater to the average student. While this is great for the general population, this is not ok for special needs children, who have every right to the same education and the average student. I am a mom from Washington State, and I feel that the "No Child Left Behind" Law has left my son and many other students behind.
