No Child Left Behind
No Child Left Behind (NCLB) or commonly referred to Nicole B.
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (No Child Left Behind) is a landmark in education reform designed to improve student achievement and change the culture of America’s schools. President George W. Bush describes this law as the “cornerstone of my administration.” Clearly, our children are our future, and, as President Bush has expressed, “Too many of our neediest children are being left behind.”
With passage of No Child Left Behind, Congress reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)–the principal federal law affecting education from kindergarten through high school. In amending ESEA, the new law represents a sweeping overhaul of federal efforts to support elementary and secondary education in the United States. It is built on four common-sense pillars: accountability for results; an emphasis on doing what works based on scientific research; expanded parental options; and expanded local control and flexibility.

What is the TEXAS ACP?
The State Board for Educator Certification approved, TEXAS Alternative Certification Program, is an intensive one year educator preparation program designed to identify, select, train and certify top quality teacher-candidates through a series of workshops, seminars, field activities, and an internship.
Alternative certification programs evolved out of a perceived need to not only address teacher shortages, but also to improve the quality of teaching. The increasing need for teachers due to student population increases, teacher resignations and retirements, concern for the quality of teaching, and the inability of educational institutions to keep up with the demand for highly qualified teachers across the State of Texas and the nation, has led to the development of Alternative Education Programs.
Historically, university teacher education programs have been the primary source of teachers for school districts. Their teacher preparation programs are approved by the State. The TEXAS ACP is not a university program. However, like university certification programs, it is state approved. Our institution is not accredited by the Texas Higher Coordinating Board, because we don’t have to be. We do not have to be accredited as an institution because we offer individuals the opportunity to become Texas certified teachers and do not confer individuals with degrees.
