» No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 Program Coordination in New Jersey Power Point Presentation - This PowerPoint presentation provides an overview of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), including its major programs and allocations to New Jersey. The NCLB was signed into law on January 8, 2002, by President Bush, and represents the Presidents education reform plan and contains the most sweeping changes to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) since it was enacted in 1965. The NCLB changes the federal governments role in K-12 education by focusing on school success as measured by student achievement. The act also contains the Presidents four basic education reform principles: stronger accountability for results, increased flexibility and local control, expanded options for parents, and an emphasis on teaching methods that have been proven to work.
