Editorial Reviews

Review

This thoughtful volume avoids ideological posturing and instead asks important questions about what the federal government can and cannot do well in supporting education. The cast of contributors is top-notch and with enough differences in focus and perspective to make for a stimulating collection that you ll want to read in full. --Jeffrey R. Henig, Professor of Political Science and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University

A must-read for every education policy maker in the field, especially every state education leader who is directly affected by federal education policies and actions. As we chart an important course to follow on No Child Left Behind, it is imperative that we recognize the past since 'what's past
is prologue.' --Paul G. Pastorek, Chief Counsel, EADS North America, Former Superintendent of Education, Louisiana
