Description - America's Failing Schools by W. James Popham

No Child Left Behind, the legislation signed into law by President Bush in January 2002, is a hugely new important development in the American education. These new laws call for substantially expanded testing, stringent accountablity and annual school-focused report cards at the state, district and school levels. Despite the enormous reach of these new developments, few people actually understand them. This book makes these laws and their implications clear for teachers, students and parents alike. It breaks down the legislation and its effects into easily understood parts, and details key new measures such as standardized testing. There are virtually no full length studies of these new laws, despite their prevalence in all areas of education and debate. W. James popham sets this record straight, delivering the information and analysis crucial to understanding them and their place in America today.
