ABSTRACT
The article reports that students in most districts are scoring higher on standardized tests and the achievement gap is narrowing under No Child Left Behind, according to a new survey by the Center on Education Policy. But in From the Capital to the Classroom: Year 3 of No Child Left Behind, educators want more money and English- language learners and disabled students exempted from testing requirements. District officials in 49 states surveyed also say it's tough to monitor the effectiveness of after-school and supplemental education programs required and that very few students transfer from failing schools.
