“Leave No Child Behind” leaves no rule unexplored

No one said meeting the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act would be easy. To help schools, districts, and state departments of education overcome the challenges of the law, the National Network of Partnership Schools at Johns Hopkins University has designed this web site, a combination of manuals, research reports, professional suggestions, and ideas about how best to implement the legislation in schools nationwide. Educators and parents will find everything from simplified explanations of the law’s provisions—including school choice, supplemental services, and parents’ right to know—to educator-provided suggestions for a smoother implementation. The information on the site is broken down and simplified with charts and bullet points so stakeholders can get quick and immediate answers to questions without wading through the legal jargon contained in the bill itself.
