About The Book
In The Bridge to Literacy: No Child — Or Adult — Left Behind, Corcoran uncovers the crisis state of illiteracy in America and shares a vision of hope for millions of people who lack basic reading and writing skills (Corcoran’s first book, The Teacher Who Couldn’t Read, sold more than 50,000 units, including hardcover, paperback, and books on tape). Bridge to Literacy comes at a critical time. In 2007, Congress will consider reauthorizing the sweeping federal education reform known as the “No Child Left Behind Act,” which received strong bipartisan support when first enacted in 2002. With 2014 set as the deadline to close the gap on achievement tests, many school districts have failed to show measurable progress — particularly for underprivileged and minority students. Debate over reauthorizing the Act will touch off bitter debate, particularly given the opposition of the National Education Association (NEA). Rather than become discouraged or abandon the education reforms, the author believes that school districts, teachers, policymakers, parents, and importantly institutions of higher education that train teachers must redouble their efforts to commit to the goals of No Child Left Behind.
