News show highlights empowered parents.
Giving parents more choices than ever before for their children's education --with magnet schools, charter schools, free tutoring and public school choice--NCLB has sent a strong message that results matter. Parents deserve timely information and better options, especially when their public schools do not live up to their promises. Guests on the September show will: discuss how these options work; provide tips for parents on staying informed, getting involved and helping their children succeed in school; and report how the law is working to narrow the achievement gap. The show also will highlight the Department's work over the summer and preview Secretary Spelling's back-to-school bus tour. Each month, Education News Parents Can Use showcases: schools and school districts from across the country; conversations with school officials, parents and education experts; and advice and free resources for parents and educators.
