it helped a lot because it

1. boost payments to schools by 24% and let states use it like they wanted

2. encougred kids to do better at school

3. showed progress in schools and states

4. gave states more power

5. gave kids the power to pass thier grades

Side: helped

Every president since Kennedy has vowed to help education and failed, so I don't think anybody can single out Bush. NCLB let's us see where each student stands individually and lets us see where schools stand and qualify for federal funding.

Side: helped
