|If I may make a small comment on Professor Rueda's fine review:|
Professor Rueda writes that,
"the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001... focused on education reform has been passed. Significantly, one of the four “pillars” of this national education reform blueprint is accountability and testing (the others include flexibility and local control, funding for what works, and expanded parental options). This new law represents a comprehensive overhaul of existing federal law (the Elementary and Secondary Education Act passed in 1965 and the Improving America’s Schools Act of 1995) and now becomes the principal federal law affecting K-12 education today. "
Just to clarify, PL 103-382, the Improving America's Schools Act was signed into law by President Clinton on 10/24/94 and so usually seems to be called the Improving America’s Schools Act of 1994.
