In 2001, the sweeping educational reforms of the No Child Left Behind Act sharply divided teachers and policy makers over the direction of U.S. schools. Proponents say the changes increase accountability and provide new options for parents of children in failing institutions. Critics charge that the law's intent and impact are quite different as poor, urban schools are tagged as failures and marked for closure at the same time the students are denied entrance to better-funded, higher-performing schools. Educational Standards clearly and fairly explores both sides of the debate surrounding this critical issue."@en ;
