News show highlights empowered parents.

As children return to school this fall, the ways in which parents and schools are working together under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) to ensure a high-quality education will be the focus of the September edition of Education News Parents Can Use, the U.S. Department of Education's monthly television program.

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.
