Parents and community members are confused about the No Child Left Behind legislation and what it means for the children at our school. Can you suggest a resource I can use to increase their understanding?

Polls continue to indicate that parents and community members are not well informed about the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act and its ramifications for students and schools. The Learning First Alliance offers A Practical Guide to Talking with Your Community About No Child Left Behind and Schools in Need of Improvement. These free materials are designed to help school leaders communicate with parents and the community about the law and its impact on the community. The guide can be adapted for individual communities by selecting the most relevant issues and adding specifics for your district. It also contains links to many other resources.
