by Lisa A. Riegel


No Parent Left Behind book. Lisa Riegel, ns teacher and journalism adviser, proudly releases her first book, No Parent Left Behind: A Handbook for Parents of Struggling Students.

No Parent Left Behind book. After nearly a decade of watching students struggle to achieve, I identified several common reasons students struggle.

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 (NCLB) was a . Act of Congress that reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act; it included Title I provisions applying to disadvantaged students. It supported standards-based education reform based on the premise that setting high standards and establishing measurable goals could improve individual outcomes in education. The Act required states to develop assessments in basic skills.

In my book, No Parent Left Behind: Navigating the Special Education Universe, I write about the things effective parents of special needs children do to support and nurture their growth. No Parent Left Behind.

When "no child left behind" became the mantra of federal education officials fiveĀ . Parent-teacher partnerships

When "no child left behind" became the mantra of federal education officials five years ago, it was touted as a way to empower parents to ensure their children received a good education. If schools are chronically failing academically, children can receive tutoring or transfer. But, he adds, "there's a long way to go in terms of parents really understanding fully what the rights and the opportunities are of No Child Left Behind. The vision of the law, the group reported, "remains unfulfilled. Parent-teacher partnerships.

Parents had the right to get individual test results for their children. NCLB also set the expectation that struggling students learn alongside their peers

Parents had the right to get individual test results for their children. Schools had to publicly report school and subgroup results. NCLB also set the expectation that struggling students learn alongside their peers. By making schools report their results by subgroup, NCLB shined a light on students receiving special education services. Schools were pushed to give struggling students more attention, support and help. No Child Left Behind: The current version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)-the principal federal law affecting public education from kindergarten through high school in the United States. Often referred to as NCLB.

Parents are provided annually with a detailed report of student achievement, and explanations are provided of achievement levels. There's little doubt that the No Child Left Behind Act will be reauthorized by Congress in 2007. The open question is: How will Congress change the Act?

Parents are provided annually with a detailed report of student achievement, and explanations are provided of achievement levels. Major drawbacks of the No Child Left Behind Act include: Federal Underfunding.

Lisa Riegel, English/communications teacher and journalism adviser, proudly releases her first book, No Parent Left Behind: A Handbook for Parents of Struggling Students. "After nearly a decade of watching students struggle to achieve, I identified several common reasons students struggle. Each chapter of the book tackles one of these issues and offers parents realistic ways they can help their children," said Riegel. Riegel previewed the topics in her book in her successful Suburban News column, "No Parent Left Behind." "People contacted me to ask about the book. I sent them manuscripts since the book was not yet completed. One group of women used the manuscript as the foundation for a book club where they could discuss the chapters and share what worked." No Parent Left Behind: A Handbook for Parents of Struggling Students fills a much needed niche in parenting and educational texts. "Most books on helping our children in school focus on skill building in the elementary years. The parenting books focus on behavior. I couldn't find much for parents about helping middle or high school children succeed in school." Riegel hopes her book will not only attract parents, but also school districts. "Schools usually have some type of intervention system in place for students who are struggling. I am hoping they will either recommend my book to parents or provide copies for them," said Riegel.

As a mother of three school-aged children, I recommend reading this book even if you are not a parent of a struggling student. Her information on organizational methods is very helpful especially when faced with the storm of handouts sent home with my girls. This book provides additional insight into why boys more than girls seem to be struggling with school.

As a teacher, I recognize many of the methods she discusses throughout the handbook. It is a practical and well-research resource for both teachers and parents.
