Wrightslaw: No Child Left Behind
by Peter W. D. Wright, Pamela Darr Wright & Suzanne Whitney Heath
Contents l Special Features l Reviews l Orders

Print this page

Note: Congress has begun the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the statute formerly known as No Child Left Behind.

Due to the impending reauthorization, we will not order a reprint. If you want a copy of the NCLB statute, it is available on CD-ROM for a discounted price of $14.95.

The Wrightslaw No Child Left Behind CD-ROM includes the full text of the NCLB statute, regulations, dozens of publications, and references.

Early Reviews

". . . The book is clearly written so that it is understood by readers who are unfamiliar with lawyer-talk. Sample letters are included of parents writing to schools and to attorneys. . . . These authors have again written a book that is important for all of us involved with children and their families of varying kinds of special needs." Perspectives, International Dyslexia Association

“Easy to read, incredibly informative – a ‘must read’ for all parents in America.”
— Dr. Elaine Holden, The Reading Foundation

“Does an amazing job of making this law understandable and accessible to lay folk, like me.” — Sandra Rief, master teacher and author of How to Reach and Teach ADD/ADHD Children

“You did a Herculean job of analyzing the No Child Left Behind Act . . . that will pay dividends for parents and advocates.” — Torin Togut, Esq.

Special Features

When we designed Wrightslaw: No Child Left Behind, we added special features to make the book easier to use.

* The Book Stays Open!

One of the irritations of life is doing research using a book that will not stay open. Some books close s-l-o-w-l-y. Others snap shut. To keep these books open, you have to put weights on both sides. We had Wrightslaw: No Child Left Behind specially-bound so when you open it, it lays flat!

* Room for Your Notes

When you use a legal reference book, you need room for your notes. We designed Wrightslaw: No Child Left Behind with more "white space" so you have room for your notes.

* A Strong, Sturdy Book

You have heard the saying, "You can't judge a book by its cover." Maybe you can. The cover of Wrightslaw: No Child Left Behind is laminated and made of extra-heavy stock. The book is strong and sturdy.
