"Here, for the first time, is the essential volume on NCLB. In Moving Every Child Ahead, Michael Rebell‚ education law scholar and foremost authority on the educational rights of children who led the Campaign for Fiscal Equity (CFE) in its constitutional challenge to New York's education finance system‚ and his colleague Jessica Wolff examine the federal No Child Left Behind Act through the lens of educational equity.
