    “For the cost of 1 percent of the Bush administration’s 2003 tax cuts or the equivalent of one week’s combat cost during the war in Iraq, we could provide top quality preparation for more than 150,000 new teachers to teach in high-need schools and mentor all of the new teachers who are hired over the next 5 years.” (Page 30) “ . . a recognition that public education is in many ways the very foundation of our democracy. . . It is the nation’s most valuable public resource for creating [...]

    A great series of essays on the effects of No Child Left Behind on the school lives and educational communities of American kids. It's a really short, easy, and accessible read, and the authors really deftly synthesize the effects of NCLB on a variety of spheres from the pedagogical and instructional to the social, societal, and political. Many of the authors even provide a fairly balanced and empathic viewpoint of NCLB - which I don't think is an obligation, but I appreciated the basic respect [...]

    Anyone interested in the status of education in the US needs to read this book While it may seem that No Child Left Behind (NCLB) is a great thing, especially to someone who hasn't talked to teachers or read on their own on the topic, it is actually the DEVIL. Okay, it's not THAT bad, but its effects could mean the end of public education as we know it. It punishes students and communities that need help the most, and actually makes worse the very problems it sets out to solve. This book contain [...]

    I appreciated the perspectives of the experts contributing chapters here but I'm left looking for some literature from the other side so that I can have a more balanced view of what SHOULD be happening in education. These essays were extremely well-written and persuasive singly and as a collection, however.

    This was a good introduction to NCLB. Every chapter was refreshing because each was written by a different scholar and provided a new perspective on NCLB and its impact on education. Overall this book was well compiled and interesting.

    A great book for making sense of No Child Left Behind, and how it has become one of the greatest factors in pushing great teachers out of education, and leading to the demise of public education one school at a time.

    The democratic process is being destroyed because of the NCLB Act and it's insistence on using standardized test scores to judge schools. The whole point is to privatize public schools and for someone to make a profit off of them.

    A very important book to read, especially given the Duncan/Obama effort to create a new version of NCLB style of policies and programs.

    Eye opening behind the scenes view of what NCLB has meant for schools, children, teachers and society. Clearly written, mostly factual but written with a definite political bias.

    It wasn't quite what I was expecting, the critique fell short, and I felt like it almost tried to apologize for NCLB instead of demand change.

    Carlos
    A great starting point, although as an outsider to this dynamic field, it's hard to track what's changed or hasn't since its writing.

    Jay
    Teachers must read this book!

    Nicole
    Ever wonder about the current state of our educational system and how it got that way? Read this book, keep in mind the constant and dramatic cuts in funding, and you'll have a pretty good idea.

    Lizzy
    This book speaks Truth!

    Ellen
    Shocking expose of the time bomb in education that is NCLB.
