The “Garden” That is Being Left Behind “No Child Left Behind” (NCLB) and its effect on the Kindergarten Experience
The expectations of both teachers and students of Kindergarten have drastically changed over the past 20 years. Once a place where children could learn and grow in their ideal image, Kindergarten has turned into a place of assessments and accountability measures. The shift in demands and expectations took place after the passing of the No Child Left Behind Legislation in 2002. My research dives into how the passing of the legislation has affected the overall Kindergarten experience and what are the best practices in a contemporary Kindergarten classroom.
