The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) has joined with a number of education organizations to publish this “Practical Guide to Talking with Your Community about No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and Schools in Need of Improvement.” The free, web-based guide is intended to help school and district administrators, parents, and teachers understand, explain, and discuss NCLB, its requirements, and its implications for local schools and districts. The materials give special attention to those schools labeled “in need of improvement” and are intended to assist local efforts to rally community support for school improvement-and not to advocate for or against specific provisions in NCLB. The materials are provided by the Learning First Alliance, a partnership of ASCD and 11 other education organizations representing parents, teachers, principals, administrators, local and state boards of education, and schools of education.
