American Children Left Behind in Science and Math EducationNo Child Left Behind: That was the promise of George W. Bush's education package. Testing, the very measure that President Bush said would vindicate the program, shows that the promise of the No Child Left Behind Act has not been met. The Program for International Student Assessment tests 15 year-old students in 30 different countries, including the United States, assessing skills in math and science. The results, as described in the headline of a newspaper article by the Associated Press: "US teens lag behind in science and math". Lagging sure sounds like being left behind. The test finds that American students are not performing as well in science and math as students in other countries around the world. There's no sign of improvement among American students on the test since the No Child Left Behind Act was passed. (Source: Associated Press, December 4, 2007)
