NCLB contains provisions designed to discourage the hiring of teachers who lack expertise in their content areas which are defined as "core subject" areas, and to rectify the problem of large numbers of students being taught by teachers with inadequate content knowlege and preparation in the subjects they are teaching.
NCLB Action Briefs, a project of Public Education Network (PEN) and the National Coalition for Parent Involvement in Education (NCPIE), are designed to keep community and parent leaders up to date on various provisions of NCLB.
The action briefs are written in easy-to-use language focused on specific sections of the law and include pertinent regulations, a glossary of terms, action steps, and additional resources.
