EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ THIS BOOK!
"Many Children Left Behind: How the No Child Left Behind Act is Damaging Our Children and Our Schools"--the title says it all. This is a compelling book. Parents, teachers, future teachers, professors, and graduate students (like me) should read this book and write your congressman. You will want to after reading this. An assembly of essays in language the layman can understand, but research-based for the educators, this is an easy and quick read. Here is one of my favorite quotes from the book, "The biggest problem with the NCLB Act is that it mistakes measuring schools for fixing them" (Darling-Hammond, p. 9). I want this on a bumper sticker.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
It was a little disheartening that I found 8 typos, left out words, or grammatical errors in a book about education. And the book was edited by two principals! Nevertheless, the content of the book is excellent. I showed this book to my professor and he immediately wrote down the title and ISBN number so he could order it.
