No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and
Connecticut Accountability for Learning Legislation
NCLB was enacted by the federal government to address the national problem of low academic achievement for specific groups of students in our public schools. In an effort to address this achievement gap in the State of Connecticut, state legislation was passed in 2007 to support the State Department of Educationís efforts to identify and work with schools and districts that were identified as underperforming. These two pieces of legislation work hand in hand to guide the Departmentís accountability and school improvement work.
