WEFOUNDThe Left Behind Fantasy: The Theology Behind the Left Behind Tales


The Last of Us is easily one of the best games of PlayStation 3’s generation – if not the best game, period – so any excuse to jump back into its expertly realized world is most welcome. With Left Behind, developer Naughty Dog’s only single-player DLC for The Last of Us, we get to do just that. Squeezing out just a few more precious hours of exploration in its post-pandemic, post-apocalyptic United States includes both enlightening story reveals and an interesting new take on combat.

The real beauty of Left Behind is that it isn’t derivative of The Last of Us’ campaign, nor is it an afterthought or a cash-in (though, at $14.99, it’s a tad bit expensive). It’s a thoughtful and meaningful prologue to the events of the original game, fleshing-out Ellie’s origins through the lens of her friendship with a girl named Riley (who’s first introduced in the companion comics, American Dreams). We get a true taste for Ellie’s connection with Riley, and how that helps form who she’s become by the time she meets Joel. And there are a ton of other surprises, to boot.

Playing as Ellie isn’t necessarily novel in and of itself, as anyone who played The Last of Us can attest to. What’s novel about playing as Ellie in Left Behind, however, is that she hasn’t yet been informed by and hardened by her experiences with Joel. The Boston-based quarantine zone she’s holed-up in has its share of danger, sure, but the remnants of the federal government keeps her clothed, fed, and taken care of. She can handle herself, but she’s no Joel. She wields her trusty switchblade with exceptional skill, and she knows how to shoot, too, but playing as Ellie is night-and-day when compared to her future partner.

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 ( NCLB ) [1] [2] was a U.S. Act of Congress that reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act ; it included Title I provisions applying to disadvantaged students. [3] It supported standards-based education reform based on the premise that setting high standards and establishing measurable goals could improve individual outcomes in education. The Act required states to develop assessments in basic skills. To receive federal school funding, states had to give these assessments to all students at select grade levels.

The act did not assert a national achievement standard—each state developed its own standards. [4] NCLB expanded the federal role in public education through further emphasis on annual testing, annual academic progress, report cards, and teacher qualifications, as well as significant changes in funding. [3]

The bill passed in the Congress with bipartisan support. [5] By 2015, criticism from right, left, and center had accumulated so much that a bipartisan Congress stripped away the national features of No Child Left Behind. Its replacement, the Every Student Succeeds Act , turned the remnants over to the states. [6] [7]
