News show offers back-to-school tips.

The Department's monthly television program begins the 2004-05 season with a special "Back-to-School" edition that focuses on high school learning. The September show of Education News Parents Can Use will offer parents of middle and high school-aged students tips on course selection; questions to ask teachers and principals; and advice for keeping students on track.

The broadcast will showcase teachers and administrators from schools that are successfully applying the No Child Left Behind principles of high standards for all students and evidence-based approaches to learning. It will also highlight such programs as State Scholars, Advanced Placement, Community College Access/Dual Enrollment, International Baccalaureate and other promising initiatives designed to increase the rigor and relevance of the high school years.

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.
