Description

Supplement for all Education courses. This timely addition to Merrill's Student Enrichment Series offers a thorough, though not exhaustive, examination of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) and its effect on American public education. Coverage provides a description of the legal structure of the 1000+ pages of the NCLB, along with a succinct summary of the law's purpose and major principles. The authors explain the Act's relationship to its predecessor, the Elementary and Secondary School Act, and explore the implications for teachers, principals, and school administrators of this significant and controversial expansion of the federal government's role in education today. As a part of the Student Enrichment Series, this guide can be packaged for free with a core Education text (with each additional SES guide added at a cost of $2 net to the bookstore) and can also be purchased individually. Please contact your local Merrill Education/Prentice Hall Representative for a special package ISBN before placing your order with your bookstore.show more
