Public school students across the country believe No Child Left Behind got their issues about access to a quality education right. They object to many of the solutions in the law, however, and see few, if any, positive results so far.
At hearings on the massive federal law held by Public Education Network in eight states, students presented candid, provocative testimony on teachers, testing, and the conditions for learning in their schools. Few knew many details about the law, but from Massachusetts to California, young people told their stories about why schools needed to be improved. They came from urban, suburban, and rural high schools to be witnesses, along with parents and community leaders, at formal hearings that produced more than 1,000 pages of testimony.
