“[No Child Left Behind was about] making sure we didn’t have two educational systems – one for the poor, one for the rich.” Professor Eric Bredo is with the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education. He came on Charlottesville-Right Now with Coy Barefoot to discuss the No Child Left Behind Act, created in 2002. The Act has been criticized for relying more on standardized testing than actual education, but a special education teacher called in to offer his support of the Act. Bredo discusses the pros and cons of No Child Left Behind, why it was created, what exactly it is, and what it means for schools. The standing of US education on the global scale was also a topic of conversation.

Charlottesville–Right Now is broadcast live Monday through Friday on NewsRadio 1070 WINA from 4 to 6pm. Best-selling author and historian Coy Barefoot is the host and producer. To participate in the program, you can call 434-977-1070. Coy can be reached at
