Featuring the work of Michael Rebell and Jessica Wolff who in their recently published book, Moving Every Child Ahead, argue that the important goals of the federal No Child Left Behind Act have been undermined by the impossible demand that 100% of America’s children reach required proficiency levels by 2014. Instead, they believe NCLB should be revised to require serious efforts to give all children a “meaningful educational opportunity” and offer Congress clear recommendations on how to do so.
