Within Our Reach: How America Can Educate Every Child / Edition 1

Chubb (Hoover Institution, Stanford University) gathers insight from members of the Hoover Institution's Koret Task Force on K-12 Education to examine the core elements of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act. The contributors offer recommendations for practical reforms to save the law and strengthen its key principles of high standards, results-based accountability, parental options, and research-based practices. The author is the co-founder of a private manager of public and charter schools. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
