About the Author

Patricia Burch is Assistant Professor of Educational Policy Studies at University of Wisconsin--Madison.


This book should not be interpreted as a polemic against NCLB or private providers, but instead it should be seen as turning the light on in the basement and exposing the dark corners....Burch is masterful at conveying a knowledge of the layers of policy in NCLB."--Education Review, February 2010
