Subpart 3 - Eligible Partnerships of Title II of No Child Left Behind
President George Bush and
Congress committed to transforming the federal role in education so that "no
child is left behind." At the heart of this effort is a commitment
to focus on students, equip teachers, empower parents and inform decision makers
to ensure every child receives a quality education. The No Child
Left Behind Act of 2001 advances this commitment by providing a number of
exciting reforms, tools and programs.
