U.S. President Barack Obama visits with students in a classroom while at Kenmore Middle School to deliver a speech on reforming education March 14, 2011 in Arlington, Virginia. President Obama called on the Congress "to fix the No Child Left Behind before the start of the next school year."

This year marks the 11th anniversary of the No Child Left Behind program. California applied for a waiver to have some of the requirements relaxed but was denied.

KPCC's education reporter Adolfo Guzman Lopez explains how California schools will move forward in complying with the program.
