Fix No Child Left Behind

24 Signatures Goal: 100

No Child Left Behind is up for reauthorization - we know it needs fixing. We believe every child has the right to a high quality education that prepares them to be successful in life. NCLB does not ensure that. Narrowing the curriculum, requiring high stakes testing as the only measure of success, and unilaterally applying sanctions to schools and districts doesn\'t serve anyone\'s needs. We call upon the Congress to reauthorize NCLB with the following considerations: -Students need skills that prepare them to participate in a global society; -Schools and districts need to provide an education that meets the unique needs of the children they serve; -States must have flexibility in developing accountability systems that rise above the low standards set by NCLB and truly consider the future of our children.
