Overview

Working on behalf of the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, the authors found that while No Child Left Behind (NCLB) is well-intentioned, only SES (supplemental educational services) is working relatively well. Districts and parents are unsure how federal and state mandates work with PSC (public school choices), and some communities do not have the resources to offer many options. The authors believe districts should be allowed more flexibility to apply NCLB to their particular situations, as shown in several case studies. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is time for public debate about NCLB to move beyond hype, hope, and imagined fears. This collection is at the cutting edge of what will be a new wave of empirically-based assessments. It will be an important resource for all concerned about the implications of NCLB."—Jeffrey R. Henig, Teachers College, Columbia University, Co-author, Building Civic Capacity: The Politics of Reforming Urban Schools
