Examing Kentucky's No Child Left Behind Tier 5 Schools

Since its passage in late 2001, the “ No Child Left Behind Act” (NCLB) has generated a huge amount of criticism from Kentucky’s professional educators. Critics say the act’s required academic targets are too high, especially for students with learning disabilities, and they have repeatedly said students face an impossible standard.

But is the criticism valid? And what does the data show for those schools identified by the law as Kentucky’s weakest performers?

To answer those questions, the Bluegrass Institute examined some of the facts and data concerning Kentucky’s weakest “No Child” performers – the 34 schools that ended 2008 in Tier 5, the lowest “No Child” performance category. This analysis contradicts some common beliefs about the law’s impact in Kentucky.
