No Child Left Behind
Submitted By Shawna Sherman
Learn more about the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 at a free panel discussion presented at the Hayward Main Library Monday, October 6 at 6 p.m.
Education leaders, including Alameda County Superintendent of Schools Sheila Jordan, will explain the law and discuss how it is taught to future teachers. Also hear from California State University East Bay Assistant Professor Jeanette Bicais and two local school teachers who explain how it is practiced in the classroom. There will be plenty of time for questions afterward.
"Hayward Public Library is a strong partner and supporter of local schools, so when the League of Women Voters approached us about hosting this panel, we agreed that it was a very good fit," said Lisa Rosenblum, Director of the Hayward Public Library. "We look forward to discussing how the law impacts children and educators in our community."
This event is co-sponsored by the Hayward Public Library, the Eden Area League of Women Voters and Friends of the Hayward Public Library.
