Overview

Education in the New Millennium details— for parents, taxpayers, and politicians, and those concerned about education— the intricacies and complexities of "education" in America. Author Michael F. Shaughnessy documents a number of different forms of education in the U.S., by dividing "education" into a number of groups, including gifted education, special education, vocational education, and bilingual education. Educators are now dealing with various educational programs such as mentoring, guidance, and creativity programs, and are increasingly confronted with students with a number of "exceptionalities," such as health problems and emotional and behavioral disorders. In order to understand the complexity of education and in order to ensure that "no child is left behind," all involved in education should be aware of the truly complex problems facing teachers, administrators, and educational personnel in America. This book can help with this crucial understanding.
