Abstract

The No Child Left Behind Act of2001 (NCLB)is a major focus of time and resources for educators across the country. NCLB affects states, school districts, administrators, teachers, students, parents, and the community alike. These affects can be positive and negative. In this study, the focus will be on how NCLB is affecting teachers. Teachers are now being held more accountable for student learning through standardized, high stakes testing. Because of this, it is important to look at how standardized tests are impacting their experiences in the classroom. Three main areas will be discussed: how NCLB impacts instruction, teacher's attitude and anxiety levels, and their job satisfaction
