Former President Bush's No Child Left Behind Act outlined extensive new testing and accountability requirements.
Students are be required to take standardized read, math, and science tests. Some would
argue the act should go even further into other subjects of study. The idea behind the act is to provide tougher standards
to push students and to prevent children who clearly don't meet the requirements of a certain grade level from advancing. The
debate centers on whether or not this improves the education level of students and whether the requirements are fair.
