MEDIA REVIEWS
"Very informative to me - both as an experienced teacher and a parent. It was an easy read, full of wonderful information, and very thought provoking!" -- Susan E. Fisher, NBCT
"A definite contribution to this field...it relays the facts of the past and the wave of the future." -- Melanie Sitzer-Hedges
"Parent friendly and an easy read.The material is useful as it explains not only what the standards are, but how to read them."

"The author did an adequate job of explaining the standards so that the lay person could not only read them, but also apply them by using the questions to check the standards at their school." -- Sandra Kraynok
"Very timely with the push of the 'No Child left Behind' legislation, which has really highlighted school standards and the attainment of these standards. It seems to cut through all of the language/jargon and give a clearer understanding of standards and what is going on in education." -- Stephanie A. Slowik
"Not only am I an educator but I am a single mom of two. I read this book from both perspectives and was enlightened by the information. Every parent should be aware of the information in it, especially those who move frequently." -- Stacy Slomko
"Gives a better understanding of what the standards mean, what to do with the standards, and what to do if standards aren't being met by a school." -- Shannon Journell
