No Child Left Behind
The No Child Left Behind Policy is a policy that is intended to improve standardized test scores in elementary and secondary schools. However, nowhere in this policy is physical education taken into account. This policy is actually drawing funds away from physical education, and it is unintentionally harming the health of youth in America. It has also resulted in the loss of physical educator positions, which means it is taking jobs away from people involved in the school system.
