No Child Left Behind

The federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires states and school districts to produce and disseminate annual report cards.

These report cards include information on student assessment, accountability, andteacher quality; the report cards may also include other information. They also provide parents and other members of the public a snapshot of student performance and teacher qualifications in their local schools.
