The article discusses controversies surrounding two pieces of U.S. educational legislation, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). A legislative bill to reauthorize the ESEA which allows states and school districts to repurpose federal funding has been criticized as detrimental to students' civil rights. Some states are also planning to disregard portions of the NCLB if the ESEA is not reauthorized before the 2011-2012 school year.
