Parents Can Choose
The No Child Left Behind Act provides new education options for many families. This federal law allows parents to choose other public schools or take advantage of free tutoring if their child attends a school that needs improvement.
Another Public School
Also, parents can choose another public school if the school their child attends is unsafe. The law also supports the growth of more independent charter schools, funds some services for children in private schools, and provides certain protections for homeschooling parents.
Help Parents Make Choices
Finally, it requires that states and local school districts provide information to help parents make informed educational choices for their child.
