author: William H. Schmidt
description: "The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act has the potential to change U.S. education forever, but if we continue to hold some of the beliefs that underlie our current education policy and practice, then realizing the NCLB vision will be difficult, if not impossible. NCLB's vision is to provide rigorous and demanding subject-matter content for all students. As a crucial subject area, mathematics is vital to this effort. How can we change the curriculum of mathematics in the United States to make it rigorous and accessible to all students?"
