    This is very surprising. After all the attention brought on to public educators everywhere, NCLB has not improved the GAP. Clearly, it has made the GAP more noticeable to the public. It only tells us what we already new; low socioeconomic and EL have a harder time in school. It has not done anything to improve the kid’success.
