No Child Left Behind: Who Wins, Who Loses?
The primary focus of this article is to examine who is profiting from the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and how it is harming the education of English Language Learners. The authors investigate how the Bush administration has openly supported private corporations that profit from NCLB while simultaneously backing a conservative coalition organized to discredit and ultimately dismantle public education. The article seeks to provide a critique of NCLB, and to demonstrate the grass-roots resistance against it that is growing throughout the nation.
