Description

The fourth edition of this highly praised book includes coverage of evidence-based education and No Child Left Behind. Like the previous editions, it offers authoritative and balanced overviews to help you make distinctions between innovative programs backed up by sound research support and “faddish” ideas which lack a research base.
