Confused about No Child Left Behind
Over the last seven years I have received letters from my local middle and high school districts. These letters usually come in August and reads as follows. "Your child attends ..., which receives Title I funds. Your child's school has failed to meet adequate yearly progress goals (AYP) for five years. No Child Left Behind Act allows you to transfer your child to another school."
Nevertheless, my school districts do not offer me a rebate or refund. Instead my property taxes increase to fund administrators, staff negotiated salaries and capital improvements.
Thus, I am confused about this No Child left Behind Act. What is its purpose and how do the students benefit when year after year the "85 percent proficiency in math and reading" is not achieved?
