Education Reformed

About Us

What if our fundamental goal shifted from reducing failure rates to inspiring and enabling all students to reach their own full potential? What if we could reach the mandated performance levels of No Child Left Behind while embracing the vision of a No Child Held Back framework?

No Child Held Back is a consortium of parents, teachers, school administrators, learning experts, citizens, business leaders, education publishers, and technology providers who are dedicated to transforming education. Our vision is the creation of an effective, flexible, student-centered education system that helps all students achieve their full academic and personal potential. The group was founded by NaMaYa Inc., a leading online learning platform as a service provider.

We challenge ourselves and our institutions to tear down old paradigms around school and education. This old schema simply doesn’t work in today’s world and certainly won’t address the needs of the future. Instead, join us as part of the solution.  Let’s re-think, re-design and re-build our approach to education in our local educational communities and extend this learning to the global community.

Five Essentials

  • Technology Strategy
