Seeking greater accountability for schools, California passed the Public Schools Accountability Act in 1999 and the federal government passed the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) in 2001. This program will examine how these measures have affected the incentives of principals, superintendents, and school board members as well as a number of specific changes that could be made to NCLB.
