No Child Left Behind (NCLB)
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) was a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) that supported standards-based education reform with the purpose of improving student outcomes in education. AIR is a leader in the evaluation of state and district implementation of the accountability, teacher quality, and English language acquisition provisions outlined in Title I, Title II and Title III of ESEA/NCLB. AIR’s work has served as one of the major sources of data for the National Assessment of Title I and other reports to the U.S. Congress.
