The call-to-arms to “leave no child behind” in America has become popularly associated with the Bush administration’s education plan—a plan that actually diverges greatly from the ideals of the Children’s Defense Fund, which originated the concept. Here, in a bold and engaging new book, Dr. James Comer reclaims this now-famous exhortation as a tool for positive and substantive change. Far removed from the federal government’s focus on standardized testing as the panacea for our educational ills, Dr. Comer’s argument—drawn from his own experiences as the creator of the School Development Program—urges teachers, policymakers, and parents alike to work toward creating a new kind of school environment. In so doing, Dr. Comer reignites a crucial debate as he details the evolution and many successes of his School Development Program since its inception thirty-five years ago, and he illustrates how his model for change has proven effective in public schools throughout the country. Most important, he offers proof that students from all backgrounds can learn at a high level, adopt positive behavioral attitudes, and prepare for a fulfilling adult life, if they learn in schools that provide adequate support for their complete development--schools that know that leaving no child behind should be much more than just a convenient political slogan.

NCLB is the signal domestic policy initiative of the Bush administration and the most ambitious piece of federal education legislation in at least thirty-five years. Mandating a testing regime to force schools to continually improve student performance, it uses school choice and additional learning resources as sticks and carrots intended to improve low-performing schools and districts. The focus is on improving alternatives to children in low-performing schools. Here top experts evaluate the potential and the problems of NCLB in its initial stages of implementation. This first look provides valuable insights, offering lessons crucial to understanding this dramatic change in American education.

While few would quarrel with the goal of the No Child Left Behind legislation, the nation is badly divided over whether the law is having a positive effect on our schools. At the same time, it is also true that most Americans, including many professional educators, have only a limited understanding of the content and scope of the legislation. As we are currently engaged in a national debate about the future role of the federal government in the field of education, it is essential that people become better informed about the history, content, and results of No Child Left Behind. This book is a valuable tool informing the current discussion on the reauthorization of the law. As a result, the reader will be better able to make up his own mind as to the direction we should take as a nation in pursuing the noble objective of ensuring that no child is left behind.

The 2002 No Child Left Behind Act is the most important legislation in American education since the 1960s. The law requires states to put into place a set of standards together with a comprehensive testing plan designed to ensure these standards are met. Students at schools that fail to meet those standards may leave for other schools, and schools not progressing adequately become subject to reorganization. The significance of the law lies less with federal dollar contributions than with the direction it gives to federal, state, and local school spending. It helps codify the movement toward common standards and school accountability. Yet NCLB will not transform American schools overnight. The first scholarly assessment of the new legislation, No Child Left Behind? breaks new ground in the ongoing debate over accountability. Contributors examine the law's origins, the political and social forces that gave it shape, the potential issues that will surface with its implementation, and finally, the law's likely consequences for American education.

The first terrorist to be executed in the United States. An Al Quaida cell smuggled in to free "their brother." The Homeland Security Czar. A resourceful high school teacher and her classroom volunteer. In the small rust-belt town of Hammerville, Ohio, all these characters collide in an unsettling, yet frighteningly believable story of danger, human tragedy and redemption. Dee Dee Sterber just wants to teach, to make a difference in the lives of her students. And maybe to meet the right guy. With missionary zeal, she returns to teach in her hometown determined to open her students' minds to the ideas of the world's greatest writers. Instead she finds out she has to act to save them from one of the world's greatest threats. While two men--Jerod, the handsome but obnoxious volunteer mentor, and Jesus, the charming and mysterious Latin American man just hired as a substitute teacher--vie for her attention, her cherished small town is invaded by the condemned terrorist, Asad Akadi, a company of National Guard troops, the FBI and a frenzied media. Then she discovers to her horror that Rashid, the new foreign exchange student in her room, is in fact a young terrorist recruit from Afghanistan. Rashid is soon joined by Yassim, the cell leader, and the other Islamic terrorists, who have been especially recruited for this mission. With surprising ease, this terrorist cell slips into the United States and make their way to rural Ohio. All the while the Director of Homeland Security, Harold Samson, becomes increasingly frustrated that the government's efforts to pursue and apprehend the terrorists have become bogged down in bureaucracy and thwarted by the election-year politics of the president and his advisors. On a quiet day in late October, just hours before the scheduled execution of Akadi in the nearby maximum security prison, the small terrorist cell carries out a carefully coordinated and daring attempt to free him. Once inside the school, they disable the phone lines and shoot out the lights and then, to demonstrate their ultimate commitment, they execute two teachers including Dee Dee's best friend, Christie Ferguson. Controlling the only remaining channel of communication, the cell members make their demands directly to President Ryan Gregory, offering to trade the 300 students and teachers for their condemned "brother." Only a few days before his own re-election bid, the first-term president is left with few good options. In desperation, he authorizes a military attack on the school that falls tragically short. Using a combination of luck and ingenuity, Dee Dee and Jerod left for dead by the terrorists, recover and confront the terrorists, one by one, in the darkened corridors of the high school. As they are planning in the basement locker rooms, the heroes are surprised by the first two members of the cell sent to search them out and, using only a baseball bat and their hands, they outsmart and overpower the intruders. But their greatest test comes when the teacher and her friend must challenge the two remaining terrorists, both armed with AK-47's in the school cafeteria filled with hundreds of cowering students and teachers. With no communication channel to the outside world and no weapons, these two resourceful individuals must outthink the intruders, frustrate the terrorist plot and save the students' lives. Their struggles bond them tightly, setting the stage for a love affair neither one of them could have predicted. When this unlikely pair completes their mission, they are bloodied and broken, but ultimately victorious and deeply committed to each other.
