Through extensive research and best practices of various schools nationwide, this book provides educators with solutions to the problems in our public schools. These solutions include articles on some of the latest federal programs afforded to state education agencies to address challenges plaguing public schools such as the No Child Left Behind Act. The book can be very helpful to school stakeholders such as parents, teachers, principals and district administrators since the topics focus on the K-12 environments. With a plethora of references to support numerous suggestions, discrepancies and issues, this book can be useful to graduate students, professors, researchers, university administrators and education state agencies. In a proposal format, this book also provides a roadmap for successful and struggling schools in the U.S. with objectives, goals, strategies and performance measures.
