Anyone interested in America's current state of public education should read this book. It puts faces on children left behind. --Patrick Blake, New York based producer of the critically acclaimed, award winning plays The Exonerated and In the Continuum.

In No Child Left Behind?, Elizabeth Blake gives an honest and courageous assessment of her years teaching science to at-risk students. Blake, who currently creates science materials for homeschoolers, has provided a moving account of her passion for teaching at-risk students. --Joan Prefontaine, Biography/Memoir reviewer, Suite101.com

In No Child Left Behind? The True Story of a Teacher's Quest, Ms. Blake tells of her decision to leave a well-established career and take on an incredible challenge teaching in a school for at-risk students. She is appalled at the lack of support from some administrators, but encouraged by the shared commitment of other colleagues. She is moved by the needs of students headed toward failure, losing some but saving others. This is a compelling message about one woman's vision, that no child be left behind. --JoAnn V. Cleland, Ed.D. Professor Emeritus of Reading Education, Arizona State University at the West Campus
