Why are some provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) so controversial?
I. Teachers are saying they are forced to "teach to the test."
II. Other areas, such as civics, art, and music, are not required by the act.
III. Critical thinking, socialization, and analysis, all critical components of education, are not measured by NCLB-approved tests.
IV. State and local governments are given less leeway in addressing specific local needs.
