In a previous EPFP seminar the Fellows began discussing the proposed reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation and the policy implications of this highly anticipated national education reform initiative.  This seminar will examine the impact of the current NCLB Act from multiple perspectives and explore how existing problems and concerns may be addressed through the policy making process. Reauthorization of the NCLB legislation is anticipated in 2007.
