By insisting on high achievement by all students, regardless of geography or life circumstance, the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act made the need for high quality technical assistance paramount for state education leaders. The New York Comprehensive Center (NYCC), one of 16 regional comprehensive centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education, supports education leaders in our state as they strive to meet the goals of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and improve achievement outcomes for all students.
